Smile 90 Gallon with wet/dry high light

Here are a few pictures of my newly set up 90 gallon. It has been up and running for about weeks now. The Overflow and wet/dry came with the tank, and Iím borrowing the canister filter from a friend for now. Iím still waiting on CO2 to come in and will be making a reactor. In the last picture of the wetdry filter I set the UV output (about 90gph) to run over the bioballs, and iíve got the main overflow box output going straight into the water just above surface. This is my best attempt at reducing outgassing for the CO2. The water is very clear with few micro bubbles, but is the rigid piping going to outgas the CO2? Also will a rex reactor work on an aquaclear 70 pump? There is a bucket filled with aquarium sand waiting to be mixed in with the substrate. I havenít decided if Im going to use the undergravel filter or not, but it came with the tank. The light is a catalina 6x54 watt T5 with LEDís programmable. The light came with the tank with 2 bulbs working, but two ballasts have been replaced and all 6 bulbs are working now. Bulbs used in the fixture range from 6500k to 10000k. The lighting period is 11a.m-11p.m 2 bulbs, all 6 bulbs from 3p.m-4p.m. Iíll increase the 6 bulb lighting period and buy more plants when CO2 is set up and stable.
