Here's the sump up and running! You can see below I have the drawer slides. It's just a simple disconnect of the overflow plumbing and all the other cables are long enough to be pulled out with the sump.

 

Also, the pistol was out and about so I grabbed a photo with the phone.

Against my better judgment - more SPS 😅

Not the best pic of all the new zoas but here they are

 

The purple ones are neat, especially since it looks like it came with what looks like a grandi paly attached which I've been looking for. We'll see how it grows

The sparkly gold zoas look like they came with another variety as well. One that's pink and green

Those pink and golds look really pretty right now, but they will run out everything else in your tank in about 8 months, make sure you keep them in a place that they can't grab a foot hold in so you can remove them if need be!

Haha yea thanks I'm aware of that issue. I already have some pinks where the clowns hang out that spread like crazy so I'll keep an eye on them.

Congratulations on TOTM! This tank looks a bit like mine on a really good day (that day is not today!)! Do  you have an ATO? If so, where do you keep the reservoir? I really like your sump set up and plan to finally add one to my set up, but don't want to go without an ATO.

Thanks a lot! 

 

I do have an ATO. I use the 5G Trigger Systems reservoir and it fits perfectly behind the stand. It's the only thing not crammed in the stand actually. The ATO system is the Smart Micro if you're interested, I've never had any issues with it. 

 

For me having an ATO is a must since I'm away from the tank so often. What is your reason for not wanting one?  Edit - thanks @YHSublime

I saw some bubble algae last night and immediately went to work on it.

 

It seemed isolated to two small areas which were easy to remove and dip in a hydrogen peroxide mix. I'm hoping those are the only two spots and there aren't any bubbles hiding elsewhere in the tank!  :scarry:

New FTS!

Tank is humming along! I am up to 6.5 tsp of kalk in the ATO. I see getting back to auto dosing in my future...

 

Edit: OH! Right, I forgot to mention I upgraded to a NanoBox Duo 😎

Thanks @DaveFason
