Looks nice and neat that Scott. I did plan something like that on mine but it never worked out that way as I wouldn't have been able to get all the plugs through the holes.

One tip for you scott. Mount the whole thing on wheels/casters or rubber feet.

You will one day spill water. Alllowing air gap will allow it to dry :)

Very tidy job.

How's the Nyos skimmer. Has the hum died down and has it started to pull out crud yet? I need to clean mine as cussing a louder him than usual.

Had a few issues lately.... as can be seen in the videos some of my coral had lost some colour.... reasons.... spanner!

And no i dont mean me Hysterical
This was descovered in my weir must have been there for approx 8 months as per it being encrusted and rusted ha IMG-20161006-WA0022.jpg

Quick trip to ahmed at coraldirection (not right name as non sponser) for some cuprisorb as instructed by [MENTION=21336]merser[/MENTION] who was only too happy to use the c0ck up as a ammuntion for a ribbing and a jbl heavy metal filter pad and i thought my problems were solved! :clap:

Errrrr nope!

Seems when i changed by trace elements from redsea ABC over to the flreef flowers system i didnt account for the KH additive being a whole lot weaker than the red sea stuff....

So.... KH crash..... only picked it up when it was so low corals lost colour and my bali slimer started to strip.... at 6.2-6.4 i couldnt really blame it.... so.... 3 days on and thank you to [MENTION=11533]woody[/MENTION] for the kind borrowimg of a KH test kit im upto 8 on the alk scale.... im still dosing as i prefer 8.5-9 but already i can see colour returning to the acros that paled off....

The trials and tribulations.... hense... RoLlErCoAsTeR rIdEHysterical
