Slow is always good with anything. The slower and more time you put into the better the turn out.

HTH=Hope That Helps

I haven't used a sump as I'm sure your aware the cabinet is not really designed for it.

I have a deltec mce 300 and some mechanical filtration using only polishing pads and phos remover (ocasionally carbon) and have never had 1 abnormal result during testing.

I'm just beginning calcium and magnesium dosing and am seeing great results with softies and some LPS.

These are what I was referring too:
