My tank has been running smoothly after hard plumbing everything and getting rid of the flushing/surging that was happening. Everything has been go great for about a week. However, I have a question about the durso standpipe. It appears as though salt has started plugging the hole ever so slightly so therefore my water level in the overflow has dropped. Is it common for me to have to unplug/clear the hole with a toothpick? How often should it need to be done? Or possibly, does the hole in the top of the durso need to be bigger?

Did you figure out the water level? I have dual corner overflows and having lower level in one of them which is making the durso gurgle a little bit through the factory made side holes in the marineland durso

As long as it is still getting water through the elbow of the durso, it appears as though it is fine. Normally once a week when I wipe down the acrylic, I clear the hole with a pick just to make sure everything runs smoothly

Cool. I figured mine out. Had to drill a bigger hole to let some more air in.
