Using the IM desktop reactor with a mix of brs high end gfo and rox I forget the exact amounts but it's close to 1/3 gfo and 2/3 rox. Mix well and pack into the reactor about 75% full. Use 2 sponges top and bottom to keep it tight.
No need to tumble when mixed it grinds on each other. Run at full open and it acts like the filter on a fridge crystal clear

About to order for my daughters tank. How does it fit? Did you have to mod the tank at all or just slide her in?

Well added my second clown to the dt last night, but him in the breeder box just so the 2 can acclimate, at 0630 he was all secure in the box. At 0900 he was like this.



He escaped!! But good news is they're getting along!

Few more from today, they are getting alone very well. Swimming around next to each other no more nipping or what not.

What is the horizontal clear piece on the side of the intank basket that shows up in your pic? I don't see that in your previous pic of the basket before installation.

Which side, on the right chamber one there the reflection off the bottom. But the flow diverter I was using this one (pic below) but the hole lined up with the side of the media basket, so I switched diverter.

I looked it up on the intank website. It's the side of the basket they roll over for an easy way to lift the basket out of the tank. The BC29 did not have this feature.

Just a lil update, after having a new stand made, I spent a few weekend applying poly. Finally made the move today. Aside from that nothing much new to report.



Apex mounting board. Still have some wire management to do.




Hammer


Zoas
The Rastas, have really taken off started with just 2 polyps, now have 9






Also replace the stock fan to this one.

I really like it, it is like night and day difference. My was loud to where it was all I could hear. Could hear the MP10s or the return pump. No I hear nothing! Definitely worth the 9.99 IMO, install was a breeze as well, bolts right in.
