Filtration

I am running two inTank media baskets with floss / purigen / chemipure elite along with an Innovative Marine media reactor with Seachem sea gel. I am also running 2 stock pumps. One plumbed to each return. It is the max flow the tank can handle. I am not able to use the IM spin streams because it will pump the water out of the tank with the waves.

I have a Hydor Slim Skim Nano protein skimmer that fits in one of the overflow chambers in place of the media basket but am currently not running it.

Weekly 10 gallon water change. No issues. The sand still stinks and it is because a hermit crab and a snail died. Not sure how long ago.

Everything is OK but placement of corals is d
Weekly maintenance. Changed a little more water. I think a snail died and I wanted to get more bad water out. The Monti Cap keeps blowing over or getting moved by the big snail so I keep moving it.
Weekly maintenance 2 days late. Did just the basic 11 gallon water change.

Moved the corals around trying to get them on the rocks again. I can't figure out how to place the new Monti
Weekly 10 gallon water change. The water mixed for 24 hours but was still very, very cloudy. Must be a high calcium batch.
