The Myth, the Legend, the GOAT, BBlinks came over to help plumb the new sump. Added a new Fluval SP4 for the return.



Got the new sump done in a couple of hours. I can't stress enough how helpful the Canreef community is on the west coast.



Doser, containers and ATO will all be moved in the future. Added a 1" flow sensor to the return just because. Still need to bring the UV online.



Began stacking rejuvenated Siporax that was pulled from the old tank 2 years ago.



Added the Borg Cube to the sump, on top of the existing Siporax.



Started to get some RTN on the Loom, cut it off hoping to halt the decay. It worked for a few days but it continues to erode. Started to scratch my head and figured a bit of testing was in order. Phosphates through the roof. Figure the rejuvenated Siporax was still holding PO4 within, even after boiling, acid and bleach baths.

TEST, TEST, TEST... and always make small changes!

Doing a w/c today, and more testing later tonight. I've got Phos Down ready to go if needed. Ordered a bio pellet reactor from BRS.

Thanks for looking.
