Awesome. I think three pumping from one side is gonna work like a charm.I am running two as seen in the very first image of this thread. I'm debating adding a 3rd to the right side of the overflow, aimed to the front/right and up. But they are capable of a ton of flow.
I knew that switching out sumps, plumbing etc would be stressful. So I got as much of the plumbing glued up and ready to roll ahead of time. That way my tank would be down off of life support for the least amount of time. I decided to pull the trigger Monday after work.

I still need to do all of my accent lighting, ultra organize the cable runs etc. I'll then get some pics with my good camera. I have an acrylic shipment coming in this week, so hopefully I can get more done on the control center side.
Hey Dan, thanks for the props man! I would be honored if you wanted to touch on it in your next update. I'm going to shoot some "real" pics in the next couple of days if you would like to use them.

Hey Adam, I'm glad my original design is working out for you. It truly was an easy, simplistic design that looks great and worked very well.Looks great! I set up my Reefer 525xl with your original design and am very pleased with it. Now you have me thinking of new possibilities.
From the little section of your tank I can see in some of your sump pics it looks amazing. The sand is so clean, no algae on the bottom section of class between the glass and sand bed, and the colors of your corals are just amazing. Would you mind giving a run down of you latest cleaning and maintenance routine? How about your additive and dosing regimen? Whatever you are doing makes for one stellar looking tank!
