For now I have my stocking plan so I'm gonna try to tweak my sump.

I still have mad overflow in the filter sock, was wondering if i can change it to a 2 sock type of system? Also, the higher the water level in the tank the faster the overflow goes so I could drop the tank level a bit but I'd like to have the gph that the system is rated for.

I'll get a picture up in a little bit.

Any ideas guys?

And by the way, I love my new tangs. They are chasing and playing in the rocks, I gotta get a video of these guys, so awesome!

try and get larger micron filter socks, and try not to double them up, you were supposed to get pics to see if you could put them side by side

It's still breaking in i suppose. i haven't found the sweet spot on it yet. LOL

I'm thinking I'm gonna move the remora over, it should fit in with the other skimmer.

the sock looks pretty grungy, try replacing it and see if it still does it, but get a sock that doesn't have such a low micron rating, it will just get plugged up faster, and try not to keep live rock in the sock, leave the rock in the refugium section and leave the sock for carbon(chemipure) if you deside to use it in your system
