    Great photos. Shows things very clearly. My next set up will be a 180 gal with the plumbing in the basement, like yours.

    Looks good, how do you like the water going up through the bubble trap and over into the return section? I generally put filter floss in that area but wonder how that would work on there.

    Great looking setup. I just purchased that same sump to replace my DIY sump. Can't wait to get it running.

    Regular holesaws work well for acrylic. You can use a router as well for cleaner cuts.
