    Ok so this is the next next project :)

    After the absolute fail of this project (https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/project-apex-black-edition-by-elder1945.310555/) and I still have to make this (https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/coralfish12g-apex-board-by-elder1945.322849/) soon :).

    I have decided to start on this sump I have wanted to make for a while...

    This has no plans just yet but will fit into 3 category..

    1. It will be over the top.
    2. Needs to inspired by Reef2Reef and its members.
    3. I will be giving it away for free when done.

    More to come on this build!

    Too bad the Apex mod didn't work the case looked really nice though.:) Better than the shipping case. :)

    Project is not dead yet.. I most likely will buy another apex to see what I did wrong. Just need to step back from it as I was not having fun with it anymore.

    I can't imagine what your version of "over the top" is. I've read some of your other builds and they are all "over the Top" to me! ;Greedy

    Don't get me wrong, your stuff is awesome and I love looking at it. Everything comes out like artwork!

    Definitely following this one!

    I'll be following. Still hoping to see the Apex if you decide to go back to it.

    I have a project for you since you wanna build a sump. How about a 125 gallon sump. Standard dimensions of a 125-72x18.
