    Know this post is old but a word of warning when it comes to AGE. I bought a new tank from them and it blew out in 8 months. They admitted it was their fault, but wouldn't do a thing about it. Just my experience.

    Great to see the sump under the tank Chris. Quite the build you got going. Keep up the good work.

    Zaffor and I were able to do a bit of plumbing. I know it doesn't look like much but a lot of the time we spent planning. Originally planned on using the square cutout in the stand but we think this way will be much cleaner. Gotta figure out how we close the hole. Thinking of getting a veneer for the entire back section

    Setup looks great and I've been following along for awhile now.

    Quick question, how are you handling top off water? Also, are you planning on dosing or going with a Ca reactor?

    Thanks and ATO is going to be Neptune Apex ATK. Can't really talk about it since it's still in beta and we're under NDA. And dosing will be handled by Dós and 2 part

    Not sure if you've already answered this, but what are the dimensions of the electronics section and would you make any changes to them after starting your wiring?

    Not yet. Due to my crazy work shedual and my moms passing a few weeks ago I have been unable to make progress. Should start getting back to the build at some point next week hopefully
