I have to take some updated photos, fish room is expanded and I don’t think I have a FTS since the KP rock came in January. Working on setting up a coral qt, phyto, and pod cultures. The kids aren’t eating pretzels fast enough to get the jars for different types of pods.

Good question, I run 3/4 right up to the tank then they gave me 1/2 bulkheads which I am beginning to think need to be changed to 3/4. The only problem is I don’t know if the holes in the tank are big enough, or maybe I will have to drill them out.

Thanks! Hopefully they are. Looking at the dimensional drawings of the tank on their new website, it looks like the holes currently are 1.77," so 3/4 or even 1" bulkheads should fit.

Hey, sorry, another question. You went with the Mod Marine custom overflow. What did you ask them for or how did you ask them? What size did it end up being?
I had to measure the holes and spacing accurately, had to pay like 20 bucks more for a custom box but it works perfectly and the water level is just right. Pm me if you have any other questions

Exotic marine overflows are direct replacements for shadow overflows. That’s what I and many have used. They work wonderfully and silent as can be.
