Sump tank specifications (cm): 137x64x34

planning to put ceramic rings in the first chamber, and activated carbon in the small chamber beside the return chamber. 

Thinking of putting miracle mud in the refugium, with live rocks and chaeto. 

Might add in a bp reactor next to the skimmer for extra filtration. Not sure what's the difference between bp reactor and fluidised reactor tho :huh:

Got my new led lightings: aquanice (a jap brand I think) led for refugium. 2x white AI hydra 52 HD for dt. The reason I went for white was to minimise heat absorption. Now waiting for my rails to come :yahoo:

also bought a few more accessories - accudrip for easy acclimation, and a siphon

Nice scape bro..

I suggest for biomedia, put marinepure block..easier to maintance..2 blocks not than enough..I used one block for my 5ft FOWLR.. :)

Thanks bro hahah I finalised my scape today with some coral glue. Will take a picture soon. As for bio media, Edmund from fnm actually told me that the blocks may get clogged more easily than the spheres. So I went with one box of the sphere. Thanks for the suggestion tho! :)

Added bacteria about 1.5-2 weeks back, just checked my tank parameters:

temperature (skimmer not on) - 28.4

pH - 8.3

ammonia - 0

nitrite - 0

nitrate - 0.25

test kits used are from API. May get a pH pen in the near future for more accuracy. Have test kits for phosphates, Kh, Ca from DD and salifert, haven't tested as those are for the later part when I start to add stuff
