Nice. What are your first impressions on the IM tank? I've been eyeing the 30L.

I like it a lot. Had a biocube for my first tank and this blows it away. Look is amazing. I have an AI prime over it now. Def. will need two at some point. I need to upgrade the stock pump though. Its in my office and its annoying AF. Other than that i love it.

Congrats on your new system @JTfromthe313! Thanks for sharing the journey with us 🙂

 

What kinds of coral do you have planned for the future?

Thank you. I will be doing a mixed reef. Just a few SPS though. I prefer the movement of LPS and soft corals. I will also try for a Zoa garden....... We shall see how it goes. Fingers crossed.

I use the Sicce 1.5 in my IM 20 and it's much quieter than the stock pump, stock pump was obnoxiously loud. I'm also using the AI Prime and have a second if I decide to run it as well.

So funny i have the 1.5 in my cart right now on marine depot. Leaving to LA for a week so i will wait to buy. This IM pump is driving me insane have to turn up my Sonos to drown it out. Thanks for the recommendation.

That seems like an excessive amount of flow for a 20. I was running a 30 with a sump on a 1.5 and that was still a bit much. I say get a smaller quieter pump and a power head
