What Makes Your Tank Unique?
The tank has a large bioload that is supported mainly by natural filtration via the plants in the show tank as well as the biomedia and plants in the refugium. There is a sponge filter and carbon bag in the return on the sump. The ph is maintained by using a large amount of driftwood that release a lot of tannins in the tank. The sump has an auto top off system that is fed from a R/O filled storage tank in the basement.
