Converted a closet that involved framing for built-in tank and moved the door to the side.

Work of art!

A setup that should be imitated.

On a second thought - is there a walk through vid on YT?

Does anyone have a big separate refugium that is not part of the sump in their fish room? I'd like to do that in mine but look for ideas.

Bought a used tank on Craigslist and it came with a lifereef sump and a separate 20gallon refugium you can check out the lifereef website has the refugium feeding directly into return area. Haven’t set it up yet. Design seems to be well thought out.

I have plans for a 29g blacked out cryptic sponge Refugium that sucks fed from a small manifold pump from the sump, then overflows back via a couple bulkheads.

I also have a big 40 g section of my 125 sump that I’m midstream in converting from a chaeto fuge into a full planted macro fuge, but it’s part of the sump.

Any specific questions you have?

The issue i'm dealing with is I have two tanks following into my fish room but they are on the same floor as the fish room, so height and having enough slop to drain multiple tanks is my problem.
