    @Susan Bates
    I recommend 10 litres for your 400liter
    Speak to Billy at Aquaristic for the best deal and shipping.

    I am not going to fit 10 ltrs in my sump, is there any point putting in less or is that just a waste of time and money?

    You might want to lower your skimmer bubbles a bit .
    Here is how much skim I have pulled in 24hrs. Without stirring up my Siporax and no filter sock.

    Susan I only have 1 ltr in 150 ltr tank it might still be worth doing just won't have the same effect (I dont think) I'm still trialing mine now though

    I just try to think of it as high performance live rock

    I'm using 1 litre of Siporax to 50 litres of tank volume Susan.

    Edit:

    One thing I have noticed is a small diatom bloom, nothing major, but there are diatoms. My reef abalones are really diggin' the new food source.

    You need a smidge more space between that Hammer coral and Bubble coral. There WILL be warfare there sooner rather than later and they both could come out on the shit end of the stick. LPS corals have some of the longest sweepers in the coral kingdom.

    Not doing anything about the diatoms, the abalone is taking care of them for me. ;) Yes, 1l= 290g, it's very light.

    Some glass eyed baboon didn't measure the bloody distance between the top of the sump and the bottom of the top of the stand. Guess who's installing a new sump this weekend?
