The reactor output is supposed to go as close to the intake as possible to maximize organic removal that the bio pellet afford.
At least that is what every site and reference I have referred to has said. lol
My copperband is a BEAST by the way, I had a rock with an aipastia on it in the 90g so I moved it into this tank. Took him about 20 minutes to find it an eat it! I have one more rock to move over but I expect similar results. Such a great fish the copperband, I wish they weren't so hard to take care as far as food. I have also noticed my pod population has decreased so I know he is eating them, he also eats prepared like a total pig still. Little fattie .....
Also still messing with placement for my torch which has not been looking stellar the last few months. It really doesn't like being on the sand bed so I keep trying to find a mid tank spot for it. Also finally lost the candycanes, they were not happy for the last 6 months or so and finally it lost all it's flesh. Kinda bummed about it, had that coral for like a year. :-(
Figured I'd share some of the bad news as well as the good. Other than that the tank is good. The fish are absolutely great, I've been spending alot of time just sitting in front of it watching it. lol Wish I had room for another tang but I think I am maxed out on them. I think I can get another fish or two but have no idea what i would get. Guess it will be a magic special fish that i will know when I see it.
Thanks everyone for reading!
