    Sump is done!! Woohooo




    The 2 squares on the sides is where the drains will go. The protein skimmer will go between that. Then the middle is the fuge. Then will go the pumps and possibly the nitrate remover.

    Glad to hear it fits! Love that skimmer just because of how easy it is to work, no bells or whistles, a very good beginner skimmer!

    Joe, just let me know when you want to get it!

    Decided we are leaving it on the wall it is now on.

    Actually a couple days ago got the pipes put in the overflow.



    Today we ran the lines for the returns and drains and got the sump under the tank.


    Running the lines to see how long they need to be


    Lines cut to size and done



    Putting sand in



    Now waiting on water. Just hope the sump design works. I still have to get the protein skimmer put in also. Ugh then have to go get the rock and scape then put the rock and sand from my 55 in. So much to do yet.

    Looking very good! I think I really like the sump set up.
    Oh and dont forget that you have to come over and vacuum out all the sand from my 125g Twisted Evil well more like hold the end of the siphon for me while I clean it Laughing And then you get to tote all the rock muahahahaaaaaaa
