    Thank you! I am trying.
    Thanks! The refugium light is a Build My LED refugium light. I was planning this set-up for my old 140 and abandoned that project when I made the decision to upgrade the tank. So, I have a light from a company no longer in business to start out with. One of the problems with long, drawn out builds - stuff gets obsolete before you finish. :)

    Yeah, also like the ATI fixture. It isn't obsolete, but once I got it, they came out with a black fixture. I would have preferred to not have the light aluminum colored fixture hanging above a fairly dark tank and stand.
    Thanks! I hope to make quicker progress now. Hopefully. :)
    Just that slow, methodical build like you mentioned before. It is fun taking your time. :)

    What an amazing sump setup as well. The blue PVC pipes and valves just put your system over the top too. Very nice!
