The under flow is a bit higher up than usual to allow for the sand bed. And I use grade 3 crushed coral which is not as fine as sand.

So far no issue.

You seem to know what you're doing bud! Very nicely set up and transference of fishes. Fishes will be so happy in the new space. Thanks for sharing.

Awesome set up, bro!
But was wondering why the fan was located near the over/under flow & not on the opposite side?

I think that's a wavemaker bud, rightfully in that position.

Yeah it's a WP40 wavemaker. Only switch it on for about 30 mins a day. Does a fantastic job of lifting all the crap off the bottom so it can be sucked into the overflow.
