    After visiting 4 LFS I have decided to return my 2 power filters and am instead going with the EHEIM Professionel 3- Ultra G Series G160 rated to 160Gallon tank.
    Surprisingly enough, 3 of the LFS did not even carry EHEIM yet could not help themselves from pushing me in that direction, good honest folks in my opinion.
    So tomorrow, the internal setup begins! Woot, only 6 - 8 weeks till ill have an active, populated tank...

    I have started to fill the tank, My base is crushed coral/shells. I like it better than sand and I do not believe I will have issues of dead zones. This base also allows for large hermit crabs that can safely co-exist with my Lion Fish.

    I picked up my EHEIM professional 3 UltraG160. This filter is rated to 160 Gallon Tanks, with a flow rate of 330 GPH.

    I have read some input from various knowledgable folk who's opinions are the EHEIM is over priced and not as good as a 5 series Fluval. I bought the EHEIM none the less as they invented the canister filter, and those whacky, missunderstood Germans really know how to engineer something. I am of the firm belief, you get what you pay for... To be continued...

    Wow is all I can say about my EHEIM G160. Absolutely silent! 4 huge media baskets with a 5th polishing on top. Flip a switch (if you don't, won't disconnect) push a button and unit is sealed and disconnected from tank. Gosh I love easy!

    It fits in the cabinet with plenty of room to spare, and did I mention it is dead silent! LOL, I checked 3 or 4 times to make sure it was running.

    I have the tank filled. The gravity is 1.02 on the money, and both heaters are heating the tank to a balmy 28C/82F.

    Honestly, so far so good, it has been alot easier than I remembered from 15 years ago. The ease of setup with today's equipment and the help of so many knowledgable folk here in our community has made this almost a zero effort experience

    BTW I am getting a better camera and do apologies for crappy pics

    Tank is progressing nicely. I am going to add Live rock tomorrow as it is a balmy 28c/82f. Ph 8.2 and salinity 1.023... Rakeing the base material and running my diatom filter to get what I missed, almost crystal clear...

    Funny, the smell reminds me of when I lived in the Turks and Caicos Islands (BWI)
