Nice. Looking good.

Always so bare when things start up. :)

The few frags I had took up all the space in my 10G. It does make the 56 look empty. Will be adding a few more stuff soon once I am sure everything is stable.

That's a nice size tank, are you using RA for this? If so what are you controlling outside of probes and lights?

Yes the RA+ is "hidden" in the stand. It is controlling:

  • Ai Nanos, currently controlled together, working on separate control
  • Fuge light
  • both heaters
  • Feed mode / Water change mode is configured to turn off all the pumps
  • I created a "flow" feed mode that turns off the skimmer and fuge but leaves the powerheads on.

I was going to use the koralia's on the wavemaker but I think I got a bad 1050 from amazon as it sometimes jams on startup. Going to see if I can exchange it but I will be going with Vortechs soon.

Vortechs are pricey, but amazing, have you looked into the jbj ocean streams? Mine work well and don't reverse on startup like my older koralias.
