zoas are doing great!! got them all down on the sandbed in the center front. they are all on their own lil pieces of rock. my intentions are to hopefully get them to grow out onto the rocks themselves, they i can frag off and mix them to get some good mixture of colors. then move them elsewhere in the tank.

So I got sick and tired of washing filter socks every 2 days and the Niagara Falls sound I was getting from the socks. Stopped at Home Depot and bought a few PVC pieces, I now have a dead silent tank. Took some db readings to see. Here's the results
Dead quiet room w/ everything off-30db
Whites only- 33.5
Whites and blues-33.5 (fans only kick on with whites)
Just return pump- 50db
Everything on- 58.5db

From my couch, I registered a 44.5db with everything on.
I can hear a splash or two every so often, but other than that, it doesn't drown out the tv anymore

That's great to hear. What all did you put on to silence things? I've been using panty hose as filtration, splash reduction, and silencers.

Right side is running full syphon, so I just ran a new PVC pipe completely submerged. Left side is a stockman/gurgle buster style but it only picks up the lil variations in flow, I ran it down to about 3" off the water, put in a 90, then a t split, one side going into water, other has a holed cap on it.
