    okie for my new build, i have the 3 partitions, each of the smaller partions have a vortech mp40, but for the larger 1600x1000 one what should i go for, i was thinking of 2 x mp60? overkill?

    views on CLS, the intank kind where the flow pump sits in the overflow like a reef in the sky

    i was thinking of a csd, hence the extra glass above water level and full lip bracing but the bubbles would drive me mad, unless you have a solution

    I just love the effect waveboxes create, looks real natural. The flow of corals just look so much better

    A reverse csd has no bubbles... I used to like the bubbles, except fit the salt creep...

    Carlson surge device, cheap and easy to build. Reverse csd works on air pressure, even cheaper, but you need seriously strong bracing..
