Wow, that sounds like an awesome system.

I’ve never used r/o before so my advice might not be right, but if you have fairly hard water from the tap, could you use that instead of the r/o water, and incorporate that into your system instead?

This was a great read. Thanks for sharing this.

A comment on North fin, the cichlid formula sinks fairly quickly, but the veggie formula does not. Have you considered some kind of feeding ring to keep food out of your overflow? Just a thought.

Thank you for stopping by this thread! I've been feeding the Northfin Veggie Formula and find that it sinks very well - much better than the NLS Algaemax. I have one of my flow outlets slightly raised to create surface agitation to get nice light ripples in the water from my led lights, and I think that helps the pellets sink. Unfortunately with the NLS about 10% of the pellets always remain floating and end up going down the overflow. No such issues with the Northfin.
That’s great! Sounds like it’s working. Maybe I got a different batch of the veggie formula then. Who knows.
