I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

here is a quick pic of my stand. have 3/8 plywood screwed on now just need to nail bead board panel and build the canopy doors and bottom drawer.nothing special. im putting the sump on an exposed shelf because i actually like to see the workings of a tank. i think its possible to make it look good.. hopefully anyways. lmk if there's any major downsides to using this big of a sump (55). thinking about putting a decent refuge in their too.. all ideas for now.. has any body had a stacked system like this before? does it suck? also if anyone is subscribed to any good sump build threads i would be grateful if you could pass them along,TIA!!

yep, cyano it is. I've had it in almost all of my tanks at one point or another. Me personally, I used red slime remover to be rid of it. Put it in at night and gone by the next morning. My corals and fish did not have any adverse reactions to it and it you follow the instructions it works really well.

You can also vacuum it out the best you can, up your water change schedule and reduce nutrients going in and that will eventually work as well. Good solution if you don't want to use chemicals.

As far as ro/di waste water, i have mine going to my flower bed out back, perfectly fine for that. You could even run it to your washing machine if you wanted. lol

Yeah, the common misconception is that RO "waste" is poor quality water. It is actually better than some municipal sources. Scary as that is.
