I am getting ready to hard plumb my SCA 150 rimless tank!! I'm going to be planning on running two Return pumps in my new CL-44 Synergy sump! 1 pump for each return..

Let's see some of your tanks and how you have your tank hard plumbed using a external overflow box?

I have got my returns dry plumbed and was doing some dry fitting with my Synergy External Overflow box...
I am going to be starting in a few weeks plumbing this beast
Looks good!
I like the strainer. Would be good for stray chaeto and large particles of anything else.
I think the plastic inserts come in different microns too.
I used the synergy box too :)
Mines all glued now.
Hindsight I should have added a few more unions so all my gates are positionable at any time, i had an issue with the valve not being 100% square with the back of tank. But its ok since the plumbing isnt visable from the front lol.

My 120 when I had just started setting it up last year. Each side of the manifold can rotate up to 180° via a union depending on what I'm running at the time. It can be in the up position to keep it out of the way until needed. I used regular white pvc to match the inside of the stand.
