I've got the system going on a small 25g (100L) and now i'd like to start up my 90g (340 L) system with it as well. I'm currently working out the plans for the equipment and wondering if something like an algae scrubber is needed with the system. This tank will be mostly LPS and softies so I'm not going full ULNS but I do like being able to feed heavily.

there are a number of ways

you can use Reef Salt and not use the Bacteria and Carbon Sources NP Pro and Pro Bio S
utilising the ATS instead

or

Probiotic Salt Dry Skimming and the addition of Pro Bio S and NP Pro
then you wouldn't use the ATS as the nutrients will be low without

In the first method with the reef salt, do I still use the zeo mix, carbon and phos - ?

Without SPS I would likely just use carbon and phos only.

as above Zeolite would be for UNLS which isn't needed with LPS and Soft Corals
