Well, first, I'd better apologize to my hubby... LoL

I started last year, building the sump, getting our tank drilled, aquascaping . All the while researching and purchasing my tank equipment. I finally have it up and running and am in the process of cycling the tank. I see all your tanks, the gorgeous corals and fish. One day... hopefully soon.

Water parameters checked. All are perfect, minus the calcium, which was at 360. brinkng it up a bit. Skimmer cleaned out. Socks changed. Glass cleaned and water level brought up. Sunday maintenance all done. Water flow turned down slightly, to appease the hammer. See how that goes. All seems well. :)

Had a friend suggest I put the heaters in the sump. I had a back up heater down there so I pulled that out and placed both heaters in the sump. (Not sure why I didn't think of this sooner). Great idea Sleeping Giant. Thanks!

It looks great @TigNJaxx I'm sure you would have done it eventually.

Am I correct that I am looking at four Orphek bars mounted together like one big panel light? I have never seen anyone use those like this before. Well done.

Great job! I would go to Lowe’s / Home Depot and buy a length of black plastic audio wire conduit, and run all 4 wires down the pipe as one sleek conduit. ;)
I had seen someone's tank who had done that. II just might.
