The drain and skimmer are in the right, the return is on the left.

Not doing a DSB. Just miracle mud

What are your guys thoughts on the macro algae like culerpa and whatever the red one is? I'll be adding chaeto but would like to add a diversity for the visual appeal. I do plan to keep the lights on 24/7 to avoid it going asexual. Or is there still a risk?

I have never had a problem running my lights 12 on and 12 off and have always kept assorted macros. I think it's like plane crashes- you only hear about the ones that crashed, not the thousands that landed safely.

There's no need to go all the way to the top with those partitions. The water level will never be that high (hopefully!).

Yeah, those are to block as much light as possible.

Why does light need to be blocked?
