    well I'm not sure what to do with the egg crate yet its not like normal egg crate its like a table so creatures can still get under with out the risk of the rock tumbling got the pumps on to mix up the salt as i have not got enough ro to fill the sump up plus i need to alter it but can't get any information on how to suit the triton method lights have been on and there not to bad to be honest pumps were noisier but think tank draining is going to take place the weekend

    Cool. So you want to convert the sump to triton?

    There is a guy on ultimate reef who did it. I think he just removed the baffles that create the first chamber. Have a Google and it should come up. You just need a fuge to be at least 10% of total volume I think.

    No expert though.

    Loving how the radions connect to the vortechs automatically and control both lights from the one and put the powerheads in feed mode from the lights clever stuff man cant wait for the release of the vortech controllable pumps

    The returns? Taking pre orders now I think. Though I can't really see the point. Just a return!

    True but I can't see why you would ever adjust your return pump? Nice looking bit of kit though.

    I don't turn off my pumps to feed personally. Once I have the required flow it doesn't change and I use a reefloat for water changes. So guess it all depends on how you operate the tank really. They look smart I know that! Haha but my £65 jecod is the business.

    Yes I can see the damage mate where it broke must had got one a bit dodgy not had a probe at all with mine although I have mine indoors in a corner maybe walls are keeping it together , anyways good luck with the fill mate , thinking of getting dct-4000 myself to replace the ocean runner that's on mine now , I have heard various reports on noise level some say noisy and others whisper quiet ,merser says his is very quiet so fingers crossed if I get one I'm hoping same
