Picked up some corals today. Some for the shop and some for me (I think I earned it after all the acclimating I did today lol). Got a war coral and a galaxia!

I'd do the uv inline on a return. That way you don't get the extra heat and power from the dedicated pump. Also consider 1 compartment for the drain/skimmer. You don't want it too tight. Personally I'd go with a bare bottom. Dsb can be a problem and it's money you could spend on lr and/or macro algae for the refugium section. Other than that looks great!!

Nice. What macro algae are you using in the refuge? High baffles, you must don't get a lot back flow when the return pump is off.

Lol. The lights were already off when they went in. I'll get some later today when they are on. But- they both looked very happy. The galaxia has its feeders out in minutes and the war coral was poofy this morning.

I have cheato and a small mangrove type plant. No I don't get a lot of back flow. I drill the 90s where the flex nozzle exits into the dt so there's no siphon
