Homie @Texasrob hooked me up with this decal. What yall think? I'll be working on my ATO and mixing station this weekend. ATO is current in a closet behind the bass trap/wall. Will post pics of how I have it routed tonight.

So my Tunze Nano Osmolator keeps overfilling and just notice rust leeching out of the magnet. Anyone have this issue? Since most people running the magnets with a spacer to prevent sticking. My fix is to take that all out and create an acrylic float holder.

 

My ato is locating behind the bass trap and wall to the closet. Using a tunze nano osmolator had giving me a headaches. Get stick and over fills. Ok space it with cardboard. Less over fills but still does it. During the cleaning of the float, I noticed rust on the magnet. A good amount too.

after a good cleaning. Nope, off it goes.

Rigged this up to hold the float.

Reorganized the ato side. Going to add another reservoir for saltwater.

It was always a pain to get the reactors out, so now it's way easier. Waiting for a ball valve to go between the reactors or I'll just run them on their on feed BUT I wanted one to be open for clearing detritus in the sump and water changes. I dunno

Quick FTS before feeding.

Upgraded the Tunze Nano Osmolator to the 3155, and added an LED strip.

Upgraded the return pump to a NYOS Viper 5.0 This thing moves some serious water.had to install a ball valve on the return. Now the biopellets are tumbling like they should.

Having an issue with the skimmer pumping out microbubbles after putting biopellets online. There's tons of it in the display and it's driving me nuts. Been over a week. Is this normal? Will it go away?
