Good luck with the rest of the build - looks like you have your work cut out for you! :beaming-face-with-smiling-eyes:
Thanks, made some progress today at least indirectly. Have the 36 gallon sump running on the 36 bow front. I happen to have a Life Reef overflow so might as well put it to work for now.
