    Very nice. Those corals are really starting to fill-in the nooks and crannies. :)

    MVIMG_20171207_181316.jpgThis is what I built to run my tank upstairs. Mind the mess I am still building, adjusting. Just added a predator tank in the back. So I've had a lot of help keeping my water stable

    Nice setup, especially only being 3 months old. Love the trigger.

    What are you running for lights?

    When I had meet other fellow reefer addicts at there homes for club gatherings,I always looked to see how they had ran the plumbing . I wanted to know more about the sump setup . I would ask why they used what they used ,and why did they use it ?

    Would you share what your doing ?

    Ok I'm running a reef Flo pump. 1 1/2 pipe upstairs to tank. One inch drain and a one inch emergency. Through 3, 4 inch socks. Then into my reef octopus 200ss Skimmer. On my return I have a 2 inch Flo meter to my Apex. On the return it tees off and goes to my media, carbon and gfo tumbles. It also diverts to my refuguim that I loved so much growing kato and copepods that I added a 40 gallon tank for more room. My kessil ap700 covers a 4x2x2 area with really good results imo. This is my first tank so I am still learning. MVIMG_20171208_183552.jpg

    I think it's great. But I don't have anything to compare it to

    The sump is from Geo's reef. I met him at reef-a-palooza this year while I was getting ideas to build. I was impressed with the build quality and thought it was a great place to start. I'm a plumber by trade so as I've learned and built and rebuilt and rebuilt I think I would build my own sump next time. I am still very happy with the sump it's a well thought out piece of equipment that solid. Support has been fantastic with all my questions
