    Not free. They did a great job getting one available, not easy with preorders. They did get me a good date on top of that. Very satisfied.

    My experience like yours is that, certainly in the UK, they are excellent and I cannot recommend them enough, certainly from my experience when help is needed.

    I want to reduce back pressure on the return pump so I am swapping out one piece on the setup.

    I just about placed an order on a custom tank when someone suggested checking out the reefer Peninsula. Well worth the wait time to get. I'm very satisfied with Red Sea.

    So I think I'm going to change my original manifold idea and run just the calcium reactor off the return. I am going to add a second pump to run the algea reactor off a manifold.

    Going with this for return side.

    This will be a mixed reef setup. Lots of sps LPS and zoanthids. Will stock some clams too. For fish I'm not too sure. The only fish I have currently is a hippo tang but he will outgrow this new tank unfortunately.

    Thanks for including the pics, I'm trying to make a list of all the plumbing parts I'll need, and I wasn't sure the size needed.

    The larger diameter on the hose fitting takes a 1" ID hose. Not sure the smaller diameter.

    Almost done putting water in the tank. Going to stop short to wait for the new sump to arrive. Figured I'd get some salt mixed in. Then add a bunch of live sand and start designing the rock work. I have a lot of rock to sift through

    When you get a second, can you measure the height from the floor to the top of the stand? I know RS says the stand is 1m, but I'm not sure how much the leveling feet add to it. I'm about to start building a base to elevate the stand so that the top of the stand is even with the bar it will go against. Any help appreciated.

    With the way I am leveled it sits right about 39.5 inches. To the bottom of the glass is another 3/16ths
