Does anyone use the Durso standpipes In their built In overflow boxes? I am about to use this and was thinking about converting the over flow boxes to small refugiums. Did any of you do something like this? Can anyone give any ideas on if this is a good idea?

Looks amazing so far. I'm sure it will look much better with lights.

I know my instant ocean should have the calcium but if I want to get this coraline algae to spread would I need to use an additive or should i be fine with instant ocean salt mix and water changes? This is a FOWLR setup so nothing but the rock should use the Calcium. Or Am i correct with this?

Only thing I'd say to do differently is not to use the bio-balls. They can become nitrate factories. I'd put some LR in there instead.

Whats your calcium level at?
I wouldn't start raising the calcium as your salt should have all the correct levels.

Mine's at 440 and I don't use and calcium additives (I have a bottle of purple up I've never used - but my coraline algae goes crazy)

Yea. I haven't had any Coraline growth in months but I've been using purple up for a month and I already got some growth.
