Just a bit. I think im going to keep the vertex for now. Im confident enough that the curve will handle the bioload for the time being but idk if itll handle it once all the fish are full grown and mature. So the vertex will stick around till then

Ugh... Got good and bad news. Good news is i cut a thin piece of styrofoam and put it underneath the return pump , wow it makes a huge difference!! No constant humming sound now. Now for the bad news, my plumbing for the refugium has sprung 2 leaks... So now i have to buy all new bulkheads, and plumbing... Smh

Did you run a leak test for a few hours before setup? Also some times the bulk heads just need a good tithing

Its been a ****** setup from day one. I had to run adapters and couplers to make everything fit together. Just got home from the hardware store and i have some new pieces to fix the leak, and it also should simplify the setup. Even more bad news, the blue dot didnt make it idk what happened but hes dead and his tail is torn up. Going to take photos and freeze him. Going to email live aquaria and see if anything can be done

Thank you, not really expecting them to but we shall see. New right side return plumbing is in. I decided to run 2-45 angles instead the 90 elbow. So far its holing up ok
