Currently I bought quarantined fish and quarantine everything wet (corals, frags, etc.) before putting in the display tank.

I move one step further out of abundant caution. Other than getting those bulky UV units and requiring plumbing (I know they are more efficient), I have installed two 24W Green Killing Machines to prevent future possible algae and ick outbreak.

Due to frequent testing intervals and the higher demand on Carbocalcium, I have taken out my previous large dosing container from storage!

Missed your questions last time.

Bare bottom is good as no need to siphon detritus from sand anymore!

The current vertical mounting is Ok but I believe it is not as good as horizontal mounted.

Just remember that a 100 gallon tank weighs 1,000 lbs. No residential house floor was designed to hold 1,000 lbs, maybe a 100 lb chair and a 200 lb man sitting in it. Just an FYI. Cheers.

I am baffled though as under the bath tub there is no special support. A bath tub may hold about 90G water then add the person in it, there will be over 1000 lbs!

*** It may be because for the bath tub it only holds the water for an hour at most each time usually, but for the aquarium the load is always there.
