I swear it's always something in a reef tank.

Tell me about it. You name it and I've had it happen. Just getting my nitrates and Phosphates under control. I literally had to go bare bottom. I have a pretty similar set up in fact I pretty much used your tank for my inspiration during build. I'm in the process of adding a manifold but just have been having a been stuck on whether ball valves would do the job instead of gates valves. I also want to add a calcium reactor too. Otherwise happy with how things are going currently in my tank.
