Not the best pic , but you can see the HOB overflow , it’s a cpr 102 with two pumps and I use a tom aqua lifter to maintain siphon. It didn’t ever need the Tom, but sucking on saltwater was disgusting to start the siphon lol

A manufactured one looks much better than what you can achieve with PVC imo. King of diy has a decent design of you want to go that route.

The produced ones will also take up a lot less space inside the tank.
Yeah fresh, that hob looks great, a lot better than the DIY stuff i was looking at. Thats
one thing I was worried about, was losing a siphon I'll look into that aqua lifter.

Another step close to getting this sump going.

I might paint the front where the skimmer and return would be. One to hide my horrible silicone job lol and two I think it will draw more attention to the fuge part. Thoughts on that would be cool.

It's just coming out of the uglies. I made the rock myself and used crushed coral, play sand, and Portland cement. Was a fun process. We're hoping to make it an epic anemone tank.
