Comments This is my first tank in about 8 years. Last tank I had was a 55 gal with 2 oscars in it. Forgot how fun this hobby is. I also set up a nano reef thats doing really well. Planted or reef? Can't decide which I like better...

How is your Sun Sun holding up? I have the same as you but mine seems to have lost some flow. What are you using for media? Love the tank I am also using a CO2 Sugar/Yeast Mix. I was looking into additives as well. Thanks for sharing your tank, great job.

Thanks for the compliments! I'm satisfied with the filter so far and haven't noticed decreased flow yet. Bottom tray is coarse foam, middle is bio balls n' rings, top is filter floss replaced monthly. I dont use the pads it came with in the bottom tray just the middle and top ones. I did add a maxi-jet 400 to the tank with a gravel vac attached as my co2 diffuser plus it adds some extra flow.

I recently started a dosing schedule using pfertz. I like the simplicity and noticed results in a week. I also tweaked my 'scape a bit, added some rocks and made some plant changes. Tryin for a carpet of DHG. Updated pics comin' soon.
