|rballi||Since adjusting your sump configuration, how often are you having to refill your 20# co2 tank?|

Update for June.

When I added the canopy, the only opening is now on the back left side of the tank by the overflow box. I moved the plumbing to the left side back corner to accommodate the hood.
Changing the water flow in the tank was not a problem as I also repositioned the koralias inside the tank. The water circulation is now a circle pattern.
The plumbing inside the tank has always been pvc.

again, beautiful tank!
but could you tell me why you changed your inside the tank plumbing to the PVC? And why you moved the PVC output around from side to side?
I have a 125g that i am trying to get a grip on the plumbing myself.

The substrate is just pulverized top soil that I mixed with red pottery clay mixed into a mud paste . Since it was done using a dry start method for the first 10 weeks, I did not need to mineralize it. It cycled during that time. On top of the mud I placed some nylon mesh to help hold it in place and then capped it all with about 2 inches of back diamond blasting compound.
