Installed two Phosban 150 for carbon and GFO. Removed the media from the filter media cups as I had used filter floss on top of the media. So now no need to clean filter floss nor filter socks with the help of the Klir.

Cut a piece of acrylic to cover the two cups holes.

Was about to order the Nyos Torq:

But find it not possible to rinse the media easily. So back to old school Phosban Reactors.

Can't believe it is so fit to mount a Reef Brite LED strip to the Maxspect RSX light fixture! Just slide the Reef Brite in, no screws required!

Great work!

Wouldn't bother with the Nyos Torque...take it from an engineer...a gimmick where flow dynamics make it less effective not only for contact time and flow equality but will cause more particle abrasion and with crumbly (friable in geekspeak) media, you don't want carbon nor GFO particles getting into the DT.

Radial spraybars are the ideal manner to get an upward flow.

Glad I went back with the TLF reactors.

Note that when I used the Marineland Maxijet, it made noise. Once I replaced it with the Cobalt one, very silent!

One question regarding QT tank. After the 3-week quarantine period and after removing that batch of fish, should I dry the tank and everything with it, or just change say 75% of the water and keep the sponges etc for bacteria for the next batch of fish?

Do it right and never worry

Drain, fill with FW, add 1/4 bleach and run for 48hrs @80*F. Then drain dry.

When its time for new fish, hopefully a few days lead time, NSW, SeaChem Stability and Prime to control ammonia until the bacteria has time to wake up and do their thing.

There was a set back as I put my own quarantined fish in the DT and unfortunately they were not cleaned enough and infected my entire fish population! They are all gone now and the tank is in fallow mode. Will restock in October.

Corals are not doing good as well. Alkalinity at one point dropped to 6.4 dKH and now I have brought it back to around 8.5 dKH.
