Just passed 3rd week and seeing some diatoms on the sump tank glass.

Added algagen pods from LCK since mid last week.

Seeing them on the sump tank glass but yet to seen in my main tank.

The main tank remains clean which likely due to lighting system (DIY LED) still not commence...

Cycling process ended last week with 1/3 water changed using NSW from iwarna.

No skimmer yet and LEDS lights on the way.

Tested my compressor and everything works fine for now..

Also just cleaned one Tunze 6105 from my current tank to place in this new tank.

LIkely will only use one instead of 2 Tunze 6105.

LED place on the hanging kit.

This is only 1 set of the setup.

Based on this, likely will only place 3 set total.

Be careful or you do it intentionally. I notice uneven light distribution and blank column in your lighted tank.

Hi Sherman bro.

Those uneven lights and the way is distributed is intention as I want those area to have coral which does not need strong lights.
