Time for an update after undertaking a few changes and tweaks here and there most notably I now have 3 X Radion XR30s Gen 3 pros on the tank.

Thanks, yes very pleased with the lighting updates Radions XR30 gen 3 pros have made quite a difference esp over the old Hydra 26s.

Gyre 130 in the back corner mounted vertically on 100% Randum mode
2 x Gyre 150s mounted horizontally 75% opposite ends of the tank on Randum mode.
I also had 2 x Tunze 6040s mounted opposite ends of the tank near the front glass on 100% pulsing mode

How is the multibar doing? Did you have trouble acclimating it and getting it to eat? Does it eat prepared foods or just pick at the rocks? Thinking of getting one. Fairly certain it would be fine just picking at the rocks in my 300 but would definitely feel better if it were to eat prepared.

VERY nice looking system!

I have broken the tank down as I will be moving house sometime in the new year. However my friend has the Multibar and it's doing just great, it did peck at one of his acans but not others. It was a pig once settled in and still is eating most foods my other fish eat and still does. The hardest part is getting a good one to start off with, no drug caught which I think many are no swim bladder issues and no pinched tummy etc etc.
I had a pair or a few weeks but the other didn't last more than a few weeks, I still believe it was drug caught and never fed, be sure to see it feeding before you buy, that is were I slipped up.
