  1. Just a few notes. After a day w/ the 1/2 nozzle on. I'm glad I switched it out. It allows much more flexibility w/ flow adjustment as the tank fills up w/ corals. I've settled on 1.4 for now. May ramp it up if I can get one of those RFG nozzles on as well as to ensure good contact time for skimming once that's turned on. It also became a little bit quieter. And in the event it poops the bed it's on IM and not me.
  2. I actually went ahead and dropped to the 1/2, it is a much more acceptable return flow. I used 2 zip-ties to secure it to the barb. I can actually ramp it up quite. I brought it up to 1.6-8 and that was about what it was w/ the 5/8 barb. Edit: 2.2(sine) gives a nice wave action
  3. Nice setup! Just put water in mine a few days ago. They are beautiful tanks. Looking forward to seeing your progress.
  4. I've been noticing this too, since we're essentially running an identical setup. It's just a bit too much flow. My initial thought was to possibly run a reactor w/ "T" to a + ball valve to adjust flow through it. Not sure where I would put it, running out of room quickly in the back. Just put water in yesterday. Running the 5/8s as well, I'd be surprised if the 1/2 stays on the factory tubing w/ out a zip-tie or clamp. I'll be keeping an eye on this.
  5. Fair enough. I ended up being gifted the RapidLED Corona and it appears to be a stellar light thus far. From my understanding it's their take on the ecotechs. I loathe the WiFi only means of adjusting it. But I get that this is the trending direction. If I could rock xm10k's and reefbrites w/o a chiller I would. I've been watching that series by BRS which I think planted the seed for going BB. Seeing your tank and I think there's another 20 cube I've seen on the WB Official Group thats BB too. How often are you having to use the turkey baster? I've always enjoyed nassarius snails and this would seem to put a damper on those, sand sleeping wrasses and or pistol shrimp goby pairs. A lot to consider. This isn't a TL;DR hobby... I get the sell though. XD I've been nonstop reading/watching about the pros/cons of BB. Just curious how it's working out for you given our setups are so similar, so much so I've been considering attempting to trade one of my mp40's(small stockpile of them) for a 1k gyre and give that a try. I'll likely be running a bit more rock.
  6. Looking great. 27yrs in the hobby, and for the first time i'm considering going BB. Really trying to not to just throw .75" of sand in. How are you liking it? Any dead spots or any detritus settle anywhere? Sans skimmer and light(K1 and Corona for me), we're running the same setup.
  7. Great start and looking tank! I'm getting ready to set up a very similar setup, WB20, Corona LED, IM MJ return, and Icecap k1 nano. I have an older mp40 I'm hoping I can get away w/ otherwise trying to trade it out for an mp10. Is the very back pane of your tank painted black as well, do you know if it is able to be removed in anyway? Excited to see this come along.
  8. Locally have a Platinum IM dealer. Top Shelf Aquatics
  9. Despite popular opinion, I went w/ the WB20. I ended up stopping into their official office not realizing it was not an actual store, just saw a giant WaterBox sign. That said, Dean, I believe his name was showed me around and all the tanks they had through out their offices answered any questions. The tanks are beautiful. My entire experience was great. I was really leaning towards the IM, but between the experience I had at WB and the extra height, which from where it will be viewed most often it just seemed a better fit. Coupled w/ seeing MisterNanoReef's I really like his tank. We'll see how it unfolds.
  10. Beautiful tank, just ordered the 20. How far do you have the mightyjet turned up? Looking at it for myself. I think the next size up actually wouldn't fit.
  11. Everything looks great. How do you like the mightyjet? How far is it turned up?
  12. Getting back in to the hobby after a long hiatus.. Much has changed. The itch never goes away. So that said, I'm really stuck between the WB20 and the IM25. The WB is a beautiful tank the lack of aftermarket support and the glass false wall are concerning. The IM25 I worry maybe too shallow and slightly more expensive. I currently have a RapidLED Corona which I plan on using that was given to me and worry on the lagoon it maybe too much. Any nudge or insights that can be given from owners of either would be greatly appreciated.
  13. It is not the QD, it's the ES driver and in near perfect condition, so much so that I've never had to replace the wet side due to during the time it was up and running it was cleaned weekly and never allowed to clog. That said are you in Florida, really want to keep this local-ish?
  14. Is it 9001(With DC pump)? And are you in Central Florida?
  15. I am getting back in to the hobby have some equipment I'm likely not going to need in this build. The mp40w is immaculate and runs perfectly, I'm a bit OCD w/ maintenance. I am looking for either an MP10Q in equal condition or a Tunze 9001/9004 DC. Also consider a mightyjet(plus). Fairly open, preferably local, in Central Florida
