Hey, so I have a question on your overflow.

For a 125 gallon and using that overflow what is your target turnover rate and will that one provide enough? I am still in the learning and research phase and it's something I recently learned about when running your plumbing.

People say try going for 10x turnover i ain't listening to that. There's others I seen go for 3-5x. This one does 800 gph. But once you get gate valves and everything going who knows

So i dry plumbed everything make sure everything is ok. Got the gate valve and tuned it. Things are alot quieter. I went with a Cor20 return pump. I'm not done with plumbing as I'm deciding on making manifold so i can put media reactor and maybe UV in the future. I gotta sheet the outside as my girl doesn't want the tank upstairs looking like a project lol.

looks like you swapped the 2x4s for 2x6s
your tank fits very snugly on that stand. did you put anything between the 2x6's and the tank like a piece of plywood ?

Cleaning things up with small touches. I have to transfer rocks and get a few more lbs to put into the tank and hang lights. I have to hurry up as my 35 gallon can't go longer. I've lost about 3 pieces of corals due to very high nitrates from not doing WC.
