  • Donita..first realize the algae that is in your tank might always be there. For example on my old 90g tank, I had a small amount of hair algae on the loc-line return nozzle that was always there. I’d tear it off, and it would grow back.

    That’s likely not the answer you are looking for, so I’d change out your GFO if you are running it and use Dr. Tims Waste-away. The owner of this upgrade tank uses it weekly with good results (as you can see)

    Why are you using Apex instead of Reef-keeper Elite? I am actually going to buy one soon… B

    Hey Mark, great job on this build, it looks awesome! I was really hoping you could tell me what program you’re running on these radions. I have 3 of them and I can’t seem to get my colors popping like these. Some are slightly bleached and others are just ehh, nothing special… I have sps, lps, and nps. I’d really appreciate your help, Thank you.

    The Ecotech Mp40s seem great for saltwater tank, but aren’t they around $400. Did you get them cheaper somehow?

  • Danny…the mp60’s are $465 per EcoTech’s Minimum Advertised Pricing (MAP) program. All equipment is sold in line with MAP pricing.

  • richard lee says:

    I think you mean that Mp40’s $465 and mp60’s are $775.

    Do you have a source for the fittings you used for the GFO reactor to connect to the return line? Thanks for the help

  • Ron…those fittings can be purchased at Lowe’s Home Depot
