Thanks I will play around with that and see what I can do. I already was thinking this would be easier with pics. Unfortunately I'm at work but if I can't figure it out I will try to get some pics. Thanks so much for the good info! I appreciate it all.

This is what my drain looks like. I tried to get pics of the high and low point. I played around with the vent tube a little and had no luck. So I took out the original and enlarged the hole just enough to get air line tube in and then tried adjusting that. Still no luck.

could the problem be that the drain pipe going into my sump runs horizontal before dumping into the sump? A friend of mine is building a very similar setup as mine, same tanks return pumps only difference is he ran flexible pipe and hard plumbed mine. and he doesn't have the issue

I think I figured out what is wrong. When I assembled the stand pipe I put the top pieces on wrong. I have the piece with the holes and hose exposed and it should be directly over the pipe. I will turn it around and see if it helps in the morning.

I would add the more territorial fish later. Clowns and tangs can be quite territorial.
I would probably start with the cardinals, although 3 at once might be a bit quick for a short cycle. chromis' are another fish that I have that are not territorial in my tank. Starting with 3 small ones of those would probably be OK.
The goby is territorial, but nobody else will bother him down in the basement, so he can be added any time, preferrably once the diatoms start to show up so he has something to eat.
