    So today was a hobby day... I called into work because the baaffle in my sump exploded. I was able to increase the height of the water, and after getting some plastic cut I found out that using weather stripping is a viable method to create modifiable baffles. In doing this I increased my total water volume by at least 10-15g and ... Drum roll

    I BLEW. 300 on a Kessil.... I know ... I know there were better ways to go about it but it's just so freaking cool. Nitratres are 2 ppm today with phosphates at .08. let's see how this plays out!!

    Triton Core 7, but you can simply just dose iron. :-)

    A lot cheaper.

    Those numbers are great.

    What do you mean weather stripping? Can you post some pics..

    Hiya, this is what I ended up doing. I dont have any pictures that provide pictures before the install unfortunately. Though keep one thing in mind if you need to hold more than 1-2'' of water area it does tend to move so some type of stiffening will be needed. In my case I have about a 1'' delta and that im using between my skimmer and refugium. I'm using pieces of PVC to stabilize it.

    baffles

    I finally done an ICP
