Hi @jayk1e welcome to ReefBase
Thanks , its a bit cramped with the curve 5 and i think the top up chamber would be a waste of empty space, and space that can be put to much better use in the future
Hi Andrew, welcome back to the hobby.
I dont see any issue what so ever with your plan for the ATU via container..... that is exactly how i ran my RSM S250 for almost 2 years without any issues
Hi my name is Andrew and i am coming back to reefing after an absence of around 15 years.I see there have been a whole host of changes to the hobby since i last kept livestock . I have just bought the EA reefpro 600s cube and in the process of setting up. In terms of filtration i have the bubble magus curve 5 and just built a D.I.Y algae reactor and probables add some marine pure along the way as using the usual chemical suspects to polish the water. Lighting in the way of t5's.
I would like some advice about the sump, i am seriously considering removing the top-up section of the sump so it gives me more space for equipment, and using alternative top-ups by a 25l container. Any views on this would be gratefully appreciated, thanks.
The other thing recommended today by the more helpful LFS was an external UV filter. Apparently it makes things like this much much less likely to happen. And it around the cost of two fish (£85) it certainly seems like it could be a solid investment. Does anyone use one?I wouldn't bother. All the research I did said you need a commercial grade UV and it has to be run at the correct speed to work. That's not realistic for home aquariums. Ozone is a better solution, but dangerous (so read up first), or simply QT them, and prophylactically treat them.
Yeah, you need slow flow through the UV and a lot of power.
What fish do you have left in the tank @jproberts8 ?
Best solution would be to quarantine the fish you have left in a temporary hospital tank (I use plastic storage containers for this), treat them with either copper or chloroquin phosphate ( @HK_Fuey has a great guide for this posted on the forum), might as well worm them as well at the same time. Meanwhile you'd keep the main tank empty, and the ich or velvet will die off without a host to complete its life cycle.
Trouble is, if you have big fish, that's going to be pretty tricky to do because they need to be out of the main tank for 8-10 weeks and they'll need decent sized hospital tanks...

Nice one, massively envious of the 3D printer!

My friend and I are having a competition between eachother to creat the best 24l tank possible for £100 (excluding tank cost)
I know for a fact he is going to do a tropical tank, so id like to push it and create a pico reef.
The only problem is i need some dry/live rock for literal pence so if anyone has anything they would be willing to sell to me for very little it would be a great help and I know i reef could win this
