    Wow, thats some serious looking tank. Very nice.You have some great equipment as well. I don't see any algae. Your sand does look a little coarse however, which could be a cause.

    Would be nice to learn a little more. How about some more details.

    Hey Rob...thats his engine room :) The problem with tidy cables is that every time you clean a pump or do any maintenance you have to untidy those tidy cables.

    Wow again. Thats a Juggernaut of note. But you do have issues. Everything in the trickle filter must go. Filter wool and coral pieces. Anything that needs cleaning must go. I bet my life that your nitrates are sitting at 50ppm or more. This tank has so much potential its scary:)

    Everything in the overflow must come out. Make sure the return pump is switched off and try not allow the waste to run into the sump. Work as quickly as possible so that you can get that flow back into the sump
