Upgraded the lighting to a Rapid LED Onyx unit (100 watts). The PAR chart (at 24 inches into the aquarium) is below.

Just added a fuge using my old aqueon evolve 4 gallon tank, the 150 GPH drain valve in the fluval tank, and a Rio 800 return pump!

Things are going really well then. I'm pretty jealous, for whatever reason clams in my system just aren't making it. Can't catch any issue on a test but thinking whatever it is is due to the use of distilled over ro/di water.

Haha thanks Matty, maybe I will it's a pretty cheap and easy option for a fuge. I've always had luck with clams. For a while I had my first one under very weak LEDs.
