I got an intank too. After using for several weeks I began to have concerns. Water takes the path of least resistance. With the intank system it fundementally breaks this rule. The water over flows into the "intank" but water hits the water there and no longer has the force to penatrate lower levels. If you use purigen, you will see that it never turns brown. I left mine in for 7 months. Never changed color. Thus indicating it is not getting hit with as much tank water as it should.

So to test my theory, put "intank" in a clear container with sink water running through it. Then add food coloring. The water never makes it to the bottom. Just my 2 cents.

Didnt mean to be a downer. Your tank looks great and I think the red sea max is one fine looking set up.

Yes the filter part. I still use mine, but just as a prefilter. Only using pad in top. It works great like that. And that tunze skimmer is great. I have tried all the nanos and it is by far the best. You will be happy with that. It does take some tweaking to begin with but then its great.
