Im about to begin my next wave of tank improvements. Things have been running well but I know what needs to happen.
First big change will be filtration. I have a 14 gallon tank that will be converted into a working sump/refugium on a reverse night cycle. The first chamber will be filter media, the secong will be a fuge. Im going to use this area for moss under another led fixture. I will probably throw some scuds in here to eat detritus and excess moss. I also want to place my heater, probes, and dosing tubes in here to clean up the visible parts of the tank.
Second will be a new co2 regulator. This one just isnt cutting it any more and I need one that can push 40psi.
Third will be an auto top resevoir. I already have optical sensors for the top off resevoir snd the sump that the profilux will use for the process. The idea for this is to allow the sump to run for one week without needing manual refilling due to evaporation.
Lots to come in the next month or so. I already have most of what I need, I just need to pull it out of storage.
