Tank is looking good. How much room in rear chambers? The evo has 3.25 inches x 4 inches in each chamber 

 

The space is limiting back there, interested to see if your tank has more space?

Very intresting, I guess all the AIO in this gallon range have similar measurements.

Yeah. Space is pretty tight back there.

Also, tank is all cleared up now.  Lookin' extra clean and sparkly.  😍  I wish they would always stay this way.

:bowdown: Awesome!!!

 

 

One Aqamai or two?? 

 

You can stick your dryside magnet in a ziplock bag and mount your pump on the wall instead of glass thats what I did with my icecape1k.

Thanks!  Good idea.  I was gonna Google to see if I could put the dry side in the water to mount on filter wall, but ziplock works for me.  

 

Not sure yet.  Will try this one and see if I need 2 after I add coral.

You can even double bag it, there is a ton of stuff out there you can use air tight plastic container? 

 

 

Sounds good, you could always pull the kps from the pico 🤪

I set up a personal set to feed mode at 0% for 30min all day incase I need to turn it off quick.  Just start a fresh set to feed set at 0% for 30 min, and drag it all the way down.  

 

 

I still dont know where the on off button is so I did that lol.....

Maybe a dime bag?  Lol.

 

I feel so dumb.  Didn't think about just pulling the KPS off my pico.  Haha.

There's a tiny button next to the light indicator in the controller for feed mode...

 

I have it on the max SPS preset rn and I'm very impressed by the 🌊 action I'm seeing rn!

Nice! Excited about getting mine up and running.

Definitely need a quick video of the KPS in action. Makes me feel better about getting away with just one.

What do you have the MightyJet set at? I know it has constant and pulse modes, along with flow control.

I have the MJ set on 1.7 (max is 1.9) on constant.  Don't ask me why, just seemed like good flow without maxing the pump out.  Lol.  Also don't know what 1.7 means.  Why not show the gph?

 

Here's a quick vid of the Aqamai on Wave mode (using the SPS preset).  Not much to look at without coral in there, but you can see the waterline moving.

Yeah the SPS preset is pretty nice.  It's called SPS Max 200l.

Just waiting for my cycle to finish now.  Added Dr. Tim's One and Only and ammonium chloride yesterday.  Should be relatively quick tho since my LR has been curing in a bin of SW for the past 3 months.

I like the look. Sounds like a quick cycle should happen. Good luck. Your son will be so excited when he is picking out his fish.

Just the clownfish for now.  I'm really into the black storms right now, but my son will ultimately choose.  Still TBD on rest, tho I always end up with a mixed reef.  Haha.
