    looking very nice so far. well done :)

    your dsb should kick in soonish, or else ask a local reefer if you can get a cup of his substrate and seed your dsb with it.:)

    Welcome to MASA b-rad:wave2:

    Very nice setup you have there;)What return pump do you are you running on your tank? It looks by the pic that you have quite a big water turn around and I am concerned that a lot of detritus will be missed by your skimmer.

    Your DSB seems fairly new. How long long has it been running?

    What is that green thing in the back left-hand corner?

    Cheers
    Andreas

    I am running an eheim 1060 return but have connected pvc piping to it with a tap on it so that the return is a lot less because that pump is really powerful. With regards to water turn around what do you mean by that? The Dsb is 4 months old now same as the tank, are you reffering to the green thing in the main tank?
