Thanks m-down and mjg, Im happy with this setup but I have the itch to go bigger like most. I keep looking at that 180 a 6 ' tank would be awesome in my living room it's hard though I'm not willing to tear everything down that I have been working so hard to achieve for the past 2 years I'm torn, what to do?????
On another note I just picked up another mp40 today so bye bye wp25 I can't wait to see the flow with two mp40s on the 90. I used to run a wp40 with the MP 40 and the flow was great I'm hoping this will be better.

Hi there boys and girls time for a little tank update, I decided to use chemi clean to help with the Cyano I had pretty good luck with it which leads me to my new and more pressing issue. The Cyano is gone but I think I have some dinoflagellates. I have been doing a lot of research and this seems to be the case. I have never had to deal with them before and there is a lot of info out there on the subject but I feel that most of it is opinion based and not based on true tests. So now what to do I think I will shut down my weekly water changes for a time and syphon through an sock. This worries me a little due to my bio load but I will run with it for A time and maybe go lights out for a couple days ere's a pic

Nice. Good luck with the upgrade/transfer. How did you keep the substrate so clean?

Thanks, it goes in cycles I guess sometimes it is really clean and other times it gets a little dingy. I have a lot of flow and lots of critters. It seems like it's always moving so I'm shuffling it around a lot so I guess nothing ever really get a foot hold.
