No new progress but here's an updated pic
Moved a lot of anacharis from the main tank to the sump. Many baby neocaridina shrimp live in here. Went back to CFL
I've been looking at a few small pond/waterfall pumps to get sump's gph
higher, but haven't felt the need to purchase anything yet.
intake so current in the main tank goes from right to left. When sump power is pulled, it doubles as a somewhat effective surface skimmer.
Nitrates are still <5 (undetectable on test), but have been dosing to ~10ppm to reduce the algae that appeared after adding sump. Seems to be working.
I'll update in the future if anything exciting happens, and new ideas are appreciated. Thanks again.
