So rather than throw money at a new canister filter I just bought a bag of carbon and tossed it in my filter sock, it seems to be working for now. I also added another power head to the sump and aimed it at the surface to help with gas exchange and hopefully raise the PH.
A few pic updates to the tank,
AND I FINALLY HAVE FISH!
I have a total of 5 tanks and 0 of them have had fish until now. Nothing too fancy just 4 green chriomes, I wanted a school of something and these guys are doing great, all 4 are eating and healthy. Their names are Roger, Pete, John and Keith.(Can you guess where those names came from?)
add a few more things too,
a nicely sized Lobo
Another Sick Acan
And some unknown Palys I thought were AOGs.(If anyone knows what kind they think they are please let me know).
I have been notice crazy new growth on most of the macro I thought was going to die off.
The Harley was added to the sump because I do not want to bother with having to put C.chips stars (their favorite, but very non-reef safe, meals) in my DT. Im hoping in a few months to get a nice big female to pair him with, looks like he will have to learn to share.
One last pic, this is my favorite view of the tank
