So I was going to go old school with the Hydor Koralia but ...... I went to the LFS I used to work for and they have a new pump they helped design.

And I got it and other than the cord being in the tank it's amazing.

 

 

It's so small and puts out 2642 GPH with a controller that has so many settings you could get lost. Design and warranty right here in Knoxville. 

So I'm cool with that.

I see the other tank is out of the picture now. How much new rock and livestock and how much from the other tank? Are you expecting a mini cycle or no? Looks pretty sweet for less than a week old.

Yes the In 14 is beautiful but horribly desired the filtration design is just not good.

I moved all the livestock from the other tank.

I added about 20 pounds of dry rock and had 14 pounds of rocks from the last tank so I'm at about 34lbs of rock.

Mini cycle is always possible but I will do water changes to keep everything down so the inhabitants don't get to upset. I use to work at a fish store throwing a tank together in one day was not uncommon. As long as you have live rock and plenty of bacteria from another tank. Normally everything does just fine.

 

Thank you.

 

I may have added a few more things I will post later.

Nice additions. I was thinking the same thing. Decent amount Live Rock plus WC = no cycle or soft cycle.
