Hi Reefers,

I am planning on making a replacement sump for my Cade S2/1200 as I want as big a refugium as I possibly can. By doing so, the control cabinet will completely disappear as I have room for all of my gear either over the tank in a controller cabinet- or on the side of it.

The tank will have to be drained when I move the middle support out of the way to swop them around, and plumbing will have to be slightly customized as well to suit my need.

This is what I got so far! :)

Any comments, feedback or advice would be greatly appreciated!
