Circulation:

  • Changed the return pump out to a Waveline Apex Ready DC10000II water pump on Dec 23, 2015.

Filtration:
The overflow goes to a series of 3 24 gallon sumps. The first one contains the skimmer, the last of the tanks contains baffles, auto top-off controller, and the return area. The middle tank has 2 500w heaters in it controlled by a Ranco Temp Controller.  I have a fourth 24 gallon tank that has 25L of Siporax Pond Bio Rings 25mm For Marine Tank, Pond, Biological Filter Media and about 4000ml of Sera Siporax Professional 15mm Bio Filter for Aquariums and Live Coral added May 7, 2016. I have over 1000LBS of Live Rock in the 375. The live rock has been in different tanks since 1995 so they are well matured. My Live Rock is a mix of Premium Fiji, Pohnpei, Marshall Island, Caribbean, and Kaelini Tonga Ultra.  I added a Tunze 9430 Skimmer in November 2013. Moved half my Sera Siporax Professional 15mm Bio Filter for Aquariums and Live Coral to a custom-made Media Reactor (3-24-2018)

Extras:
Precision Marine 6 X 24 Calcium Reactor W/Eheim Pump. This is used to keep my CA, Mag, and ALK up.

Additives:
I use a CA Reactor for Calcium and Alkalinity. I feed various frozen foods once a day. I also feed Nori Seaweed a few times a week. I soak all the food in Selcon by American Marine Inc and Angelixir by Brightwell Aquatics. I also feed two sizes of Spectrum Thera+A Pellets. I use Instant Ocean For my salt mix. I try and I say try to change 90-100 gallons a month.
