Hey! I know this tank! In fact I have pics of it saved in my inspirational dreams file. Would love to see and hear how it’s progressing.If you wanna take a look.
thanks for looking! I will follow along yours as wellgreat build, i am in the process of a build also and am following along. keep up the good work and i like the attention to the plumbing ! i am going to make my plumbing part of the fish room display so planning to do alot of what you are doing...
well darn, that's sort of a bummer. Assuming the water level is around the middle of the teeth, that puts it over 1" from the tank rim, much lower than I would have liked. Nothing I can do about that now so oh well. Thanks for the input, appreciate it.Depending on how much flow you will have through the return pump, you assume the water level to be around middle of the weir teeth.
Take in account some changing level due to wavemakers, i would say you are good to go.
Couple more questions for you. Are the return outlet nozzles random flow generators? And do you know the height of your overflow standpipes by any chance? I noticed your tanks water level looks dangerously high in the photo you posted, but maybe it's just the angle of the photo.Lol. It is the 1200 gph box, and I asked the guy to upgrade to 1 inch uniseals. Just to be on the safe side, and in case I ever go bigger and need to move more water. I do have it plumbed bean animal, except I don't have the elbows on the ends of the pipes. It's essentially just 3 bare ended pipes. I did order a flat grate for the main drain, and the elbows for the others but I found that they don't fit. And I got the wrong size grate. As of yet, I don't see any real reason why I would need those other parts though as it runs completely quiet as is unless I'm missing something. I'm using a trigger emerald 26 sump and a Vectra s1 return pump.
I bought one and stopped using it. I ran it for a few months and while it works, I thought the size was too obnoxious on my small 34 gallon Reefer 170. Here are some pics of when it was on the tank, #1 & #2, and the look when it's off.Vivid Creative Aquatics Random Flow Generator for 1" PVC. Sold out on BRS so they must be all the rage? not many reviews though. Thoughts? Experiences?
Well shoot, I just got one today. How’s that for timing? I appreciate the generous offer though. I got the 3/4” and it’s definitely larger than I hoped it would be. My tank is only 12”H x 14”W, and the nozzle is about 5” That’s taking up some serious real estate, less room for coral and I’m not down with that. Tanks small enough as is.I bought one and stopped using it. I ran it for a few months and while it works, I thought the size was too obnoxious on my small 34 gallon Reefer 170.

I am probably the only person that doesn't like it. There are lots of fans of the nozzle on the large 'Show off Your Reefer Thread'. It might work better on your tank because it's offset on the side and the background is all black. Potentially the one BRS is selling is a straight connector rather than their original 90 degree bend to get it lower in the water line.
EDIT: The one I have is "3/4in RFG Nozzle With Red Sea Reefer Adapter - Single", I'll mail it to you if you want it. It's been sitting in the extras box for months.
Alternative Reef makes those ceramic magnet rocks to hide MP10s, you could do something similar. Once mine got covered in coralline it got more distracting to my eye, but I could have soaked it in vinegar.My tank is only 12”H x 14”W, and the nozzle is about 5”.
