Great build! That new tank sounds *awesome*
Any hints on plumbing/overflows? Sump in stand or separate room/area?

Great tank build. I'm pretty much following suit. Started with FW / planted, switched to saltwater several years ago with a 175g DSA tank...started downsizing due to moves and recently set up a 50g cube because my new apartment is perfect for a 175g peninsula style tank. It should arrive in about 3 weeks.
I'll be controlling it with my apex. I hadn't thought about using a doser for the ferts. What ferts are you dosing and at what rate?

Tank is progressing nicely. I've had to reduce my light considerably and I'm currently sorting out a new nutrient regime. My test kits had all expired and we're giving me tons of false results so now I'm lost as to where my levels are.
I've stopped auto dosing until I get new kits and will be doing a basic ei method.
I am getting a bit of algae on my slow growing plants which made me question a bunch of assumptions I had made. Hopefully a reduced nutrient load and lower light will improve things.
Here is a video of the current state of things.

I have a few varieties of Anubias, 3 varieties of Java fern, a few varieties of crypts, bolbitis, red tiger lotus, red ludwigia of some sort, and a couple of stems I traded recently that I have yet to identify.
My goal was slower growing low maintenance plants as my schedule is really chaotic.

|Mitashade||Looks fantastic. Great job with the sand, too. I've tried... I've been too impatient.|

White sand looks nice!
My god 10'x2'x2' with a rimless 4' sump? Insane.

Love the contrast and aquascape.
How do you like the Profilux? Weren't you a distributor for them?
