I got an ATO COMING IN THE mail from them. I can't wait to set that up so my salinity stays more stable. If I were you I would ditch that sump lite and just get a Home Depot shop light with a regular bulb. My cheato grows so fast that I trim once every two weeks and give it to the LFS for water. .

Once I put the new sump in ill probably get a new light just one of the regular bulbs that clamp on. The only reason I'm using the current one was bc it just was laying around. Ill see what happens.

It will be way better than the ten gallon I'm sure. Keep us posted.

Looking good Tommy. Good move picking up the bigger sump. Sorry to hear about the ick outbreak though.

Phew! I finally caught up from the beginning, been reading this all day! Really good build you've got going on - glad you kept sticking to it through out the fishy deaths. Love the LEDs - really gives it that pop.

Thank you so much. My tank is NOTHING compared to so many others I have seen but it's coming along. I just want to fast forward to 2-3 years down the line fully stocked and nice growing corals. Hope to have a frag tank in the future and sell locally to other people on nearby forums and LFS. That's my dream hobby so far.
