.....day 3, I have had amazing help and advise from Aquarium Gardens, they have been totally fantastic in getting to this point. I still have much to learn and unlearn from my marine years, but so far I am happy with how it's all looking. Finally, with expert help, I seem to have a good spectrum with my hydra 52's.Very happy I stuck with them now. Early days but big water changes daily, plenty of co2 and carbon dosing I hope my set up will thrive. So, looking forward to adding livestock, but I'm in no hurry. Sump includes plastic scouring pads, floss and pond filter plastic tube things, and a bag of Purigen. Return pump providing adequate flow on its own. Massive thanks to Geoff and Steve at Aquarium Gardens for their continued support.

Wow! :clap::)

Just keep banging in the CO2, keep it yellow, no probs. Then slowly turn it down ready for when you add shrimp in a week or 2 time.

Keep going with your water changes, it’ll pay off on the long run. Gradually going down to weekly.

It’s gonna be mind blowing when grown in!
