Hi guys! Am back! Miss the cool and good quality air in Germany.

Update of Singapore Triton Tank:

-  All the cultured SPS are holding on to their colours after being left alone for 2 weeks. 

- Justin has been monitoring KH very closely while I was away. He did a slight increase in dosing for the Triton solution

Today:

- we added some Aussie SPS (I think about 8- 10 pieces)

- 3 pieces of brown SPS (3 pieces) and see if they will colour up. Leftovers from last Tonga shipment. Also one chocolate strawberry fondue (sorry brown strawberry shortcake)

- Cut off the cement base of the cultured SPS and glued the SPS.

Review of the equipments used:
4 x Triton Lani LED. 7 inches from the water surface. I checked with Ehsan, he still using his Lani version 1 since 2011. No replacements for bulbs or fans needed (no fans for Lani LED lights). He did increase his number of Lani from the initial 9 sets (3 sets of 3) to 16 sets (4 rolls of 4)

Added 2 x GYRE XF150 for irregular waves creation.

So flow rate of water (*excluding head loss and based on flow rate stated in the products' description). 

2 x return 16,000 lit/hour = 32,000lit/hr
2x recirculating pump 10,000 lit/her = 20,000lit/hr

2x gyre 10,000- 20,000 lit/hr = 30,000lit/hr (average)

So total water circulation flow is about 82,000 lit/hr. Hope it's enough!

Added some LPS to places I can't put SPS corals. Have to admit the current in the tank is too strong for the LPS corals. Well... Priority is given to SPS so we shall have to let the LPS strive for survival.

      Dear Reefers, need advice.
      Set-up
      I upgraded to a larger All-in-one tank 12.5g  from IM Nuvo 10g. I have a) customized Media basket and b )the Minimax Innovative marine desktop reactor from my previous tank. I repurposed both to become two refugiums because I have the accessories (ie free) and why two refugium?:- because there is a seperator in the backchamber so it ended up with two. I installed the Chaetomax LED light 2 days ago and both share the LED light. A friend kindly provided me a pinch of Chaeto so I am all set. And today just bought some Tiger pods and added to both refugiums (this is for fun as I know I should have waited LONGER. Me bad.)
      Here is the question: the Minimax reactor is acrylic and transparent. Is it a good idea to place that into the AIO backchamber as a repurposed refugium? Will the "leaked" light cause the whole AIO chamber to grow algae??!!! Or because of the presence of the two lumps of Chaetos in their respective refugiums, they will take up the nutrients and the surrounding will be algae free? Reefer bros/sis with such similar experiences, please enlighten me. Thanks. (The Media Basket is black on 2 sides but the chamber is black so in essence there should be less light "leakage"). Or maybe it doesn't even matter? Or should i make a customized shade so that the Chaetomax LED light only shine on the two refugiums? Or i should get rid of the repurposed Minimax reactor and purchase another Media basket (like S$58!!!!) to prevent light leakage. You can see I need real HELP!
      Past Mistake
      I know what DOESNT work. In my old IM 10G tank, i saw Innovative Marine marketing this outside LED magnetic light. Use a razor to slice off the black lamination and shine a LED light through. And the video looks so cool. I had some empty space in the backchamber and I did exactly that and put some rough material in the chamber for the Chaeto to cling on. The result is the whole area become a sludge fest and the algae blocked the light and I had one extra area to clean. On hinsight, I should have used the Media Basket as a refugium instead of using the "free" space in the chamber. Too much work and fault is mine. Had I used the Media basket, it might have worked.
      Caveat
      I know there is a proportionate effective ratio between size of tank and the refugium size. Having two small refugiums might be pointless.. yes water change,  yes good tank maintenance etc.. it is just hobbyist tinkering but at least I hope i can achieve optimal tinkering with my reefer bros' advice here. After all this is the joy of the hobby to experiment and see the outcome.
      Super thanks!!!

      Hi fellow hobbyists, 
      I am very new to the marine tank set up. Currently running a seahorse only species tank with 2 canisters filter at each end for filtration.
      I have another FW tank which i intend to convert into a sump that will serve the seahorse tank but i am still kinda confused on the proper compartmentalization of the sump tank which i hope to include a refugium.
      Below is a draft sketch of the sump tank i intend to set up. 
      Can fellow hobbyist provide some inputs/alterations as to where i should change or improve upon?
      Also, how do i know what pump size i should get for the tank?
      My DT tank is 126cm x 23cm x 38cm(height) with water volume of about 90 to 92 litres only.
      Intended sump tank dimension is 88cm x 17cm x 23cm (height)
      Hoping to get some valuable inputs. TIA

      Hi, 
      Can anyone pls explain about sump tank.. is refugium consider part of sump or it is actually one of many other different types of sump setup?  Or can anyone direct me to refugium discussion in SGReef. Cant seem dig the topic.
      Can i just rely just sump tank with LR and sand + micro algae and some mechanical filter? Or just mechanical filter will do? 
       
      I had cycle my tank for like 4mths and still empty tank with LR and 3inch sand. Added some bacteria and followed all instruction by the Henry from Marine Life. Will the bacteria dead as there is no food..lol 
      Sorry for the lengthy post.
