    Check out @Top Lids

    Very similar design, but less $$$ I'm highly considering getting one through them for my 525 XL.

    They showed some of their pieces in the Red Sea sponsor forum under the reefer lids thread.

    You ruined my big surprise, ha! That is exactly who I have chosen to go with. They responded to my questions immediately and have given me a quote and will be building it to my exact specs. To me customer service is everything. When a company puts their customer first they have earned my business. Thanks!

    Tired of looking at my white rocks, ha. Decided to add some Coralline in a bottle. We will see if it works its magic or not.

    If you have to break down the tank how do you remove the pvc hanging off the bottom of the tank into the sump area?

    Agreed got one from artfully acrylic for my xxl 750! So worth the extra money, plus they tighten my mesh too tight and fixed everything, stand up customer service!

    With pvc cutters :) It's the only way I could connect them without using a reducer. I wanted to use all 1 inch pipe. I'm running my vectra m1 at 100% for triton.

    Good reviews on the coraline in a bottle might try it! You get 4 bottles for 200g?
