Finally starting a basic build thread. I have a 40B that I've been running fro about 4-5 years. It has a sump I built out of a 29G Aqueon tank. Got both tanks at Petco during $1/G sales. Did a DIY light with mostly Cree led stars (except for some UV ones) using an arduino with a modified Typhon code to control Meanwell LDDs via PWM. Looking to build a Reef-PI as soon as I get my 3d printer working again to make a case. Also, after 5 years I just built a modest mixing station out of two 20G Brute trash cans, a Jebao DCT-6500, and a bunch of PVC plumbing. I even bought a piece of clear PVC tubing to make sight glasses to easily see the levels. Wish I built the mixing station in the beginning as it is so much easier filling up 1 to 5 gallon jugs or buckets with a spigot than it was filling them from a my RODI storage bin sitting on the basement floor. Going to be working on plumbing to feed either RODI or SW up from basement to 1st floor soon to eliminate carrying buckets up the stairs.
