Greetings from the East Coast
I live in what we lovingly call greatest little corrupt state in the USA; Rhode Island.
I'm not new to the hobby but I'm returning from a long absence.
My new tank is a reef ready 75.
My lighting is a Current Sundial T5HO
Iíll be returning the Aqueon ProFlex3 sump I mistakenly purchasedÖ.Sorry Aqueon. It just wonít fit my purpose.
So Iím making my own sump from a 40 Breeder with a DSB refugium with either a reef Octopus counter current Skimmer or a Precision Marine Bullet1. Havenít made up my mind yet.
Planning on a DSB of 5Ē 120Lbs of LR and keeping soft corals, very few fish, no clams or hard corals.
This weekend Iím installing the newest addition to the toys; a SpectraPure MaxCap RODI. Then plumbing an ATO to the sump.
I do have a question to everyone out there. This tank will be setup in my finished basement that is carpeted. My concern is; the wood tank frame sitting on the carpet and settling unevenly. Iím thinking the carpet might need to be removed under the tank to enable me to level the tank on the concrete floor and just skip the whole settling worry. Has anyone experienced or heard of problems with systems sitting on a carpeted floor?
