It says it will turn Red if it is absorbing Aluminium. Tell the G-Man to get ya some! I keep a few on hand just in case, but I've never tried one out. :smiley-scared008:

Sweet I’ll have to check those out. He may not be able to get them as soon as I would like to. Gonna run the carbon and wc’s for another week or two along with either the cuprisorb or poly filter then send another sample in to see if it’s actually being removed.

Thanks I’ll look into this also. Never heard of it... I hear it was used many years ago but has fallen off for some sort of reason. Hear good things about it tho.

Beautiful tank. Just hearsay but I read the polyfilter sucks at taking out metals while the TLF metasorb works. I have never used either but have a pad of metasorb just in case.

The time has come.......:( i'm going to be shutting the tank down.....need to focus on things at hand and new house build....will likely put a 40 breeder up to house frags of my current corals....definitely a tough decision but this seems to be the easiest and best way to go about the tasks at hand.......:(((((

Here it is the 300 shut down tank. Almost ready for water. Tank is mainly to house my big acro colonies and other acros so I don’t have to buy them again. Going to have one x30 gen 4 pro over it. Aqua top 500uv canister filter, gonna give this waveline puck a whirl for powerhead. Don’t plan to run a skimmer as it will be minimal Fish. Also will be install a Smart AWC. And finally when I shut the 300 down Ill move Apex to it. I painted the tank trim and bottom glass white, no sand. Back of tank is dark blue. I’ve only spent $100 total on this thing so far. Traded coral for a few parts and going to utilize parts from the 300. Made stand out of a hefty pallet from work and wood I had laying around.

Ok tank is running. Grabbed two big rocks out the 300 to stabilize. Not worried about a cycle. As every rock going in this tank will come out the 300. Next week will be a big week in moving most corals and a few small fish.

Twinn at least,post up a lit pic of the holding system. I like the box you built for overflow. May see if you can build one for the 40b. It just has holes thru the back wall for drain and return.
