Now that I know where to start here it is. I recently came into an awesome deal for some equipment which enabled me to start my 40 gallon build a little earlier that I planned. Actually a lot earlier. I picked up a 90 gallon which I sold that had an Eshopps sump, Bubble Magus Curve 5 skimmer 2 Jebao powerheads, a Hyger? Heater and controller. Since obtaining these items I added a DC pump 1000 gph with controller, Fiji cube 800 gph overflow and a ton of plumbing that keeps adding up. $$. I also built a side cabinet for ATO container. I recently drilled the tank and hooked up temp plumbing to get the measurements for when I get my red pipe. Drilling the tank was not as hard as I thought thanks to this site and plenty of research. Right now I am cycling about 50 lbs of dry rock that I also got for free. The cycle started about 4 days ago with Dr. Tim’s. Here are some progress pics and how the tank sits now. The earlier pics had the white pipe. I just picked up the red and am slowly changing it out now. No room for mistakes with the red. Much more expensive than the standard. Sorry for the long post.
