    Yeah, it originally was going to be a sand filter tho. That was a few years ago. It will need some tweaks but should save me a ton. Reactors without tanks and regs are crazy. So far I have about 400 into this build. Total cost will be around 475-500. That's less then a tiny GEO. Lol and I shouldn't need to add media for years.

    How ya like the logo?? Rofl
