Hi all,

finally been able to sit and put some of the pictures together.

My tank is 75g, 230W T5 lighting, about 8-9 years old now (was FOWLER for 2 years before that).

I started a little more than 2 months ago with a vertical ATS. Very happy with it: 3 lights, 20W each, 350GPH flow. I added a horizontal scrubber purely because, by fault of my design, cleaning if screens was cumbersome, plus, the size of the scrubber was not preferred. So, been running a verical now for less than one week (aside the horizontal) and all is well so far. Once the Horizontal is well established, I will remove the Vertical. Have been without PS for 6 weeks now!

The change in the tank is just amazing! No more algae or cyano, and, the sps which started dying (probably from nitrates/ phosphates/ lack of food, is starting to come back!

Thanks for the idea, all of you and especially SM and Worley!
