Hello everyone,

Just received my 100 gallon aquarium this week :spin1: and have started making my equipment list and sump setup diagram. I would love any feedback or suggestions. Does everything look about right? :spin3:

There are a lot of people who rather dose with a peri pump than use a calicum reactor, cheaper and easier to control, but that could be in time not right away people have suggested to dose manually at first so you get used to testing and replenishing. Bubble Magnus and Profilux both have models for dosing.
