Welcome to R2r Fadi,
Always good to see new tanks from the middle east.
Tank is looking great, love the red plumbing.
How quiet is taht overflow? I would have raised the elbows a bit higher to minimize noise and water splashing.
That picture with your kid giving you the thumbs up on Salinity is just Precious.
Lookign forward to vist Saudi and checkout your tank in person :)

Thanks Guys for your warm welcome and kind words.

Welcome to R2r Fadi,
Always good to see new tanks from the middle east.

The system is somehow quit, the sound from the overflow is not noticeable specially when the sound of the wave and skimmer is louder than it. the only noise is from system startup until it purge all air out.
