Where’s your sump going to go?

I ended up getting a Modular Marine overflow because the Synergy one seemed like it would be back ordered until March. I also had a few people I trust suggest getting the Modular Marine one so those are the only two I really looked at.

I'm building a fish room in the basement. I went with GEOs sump. 8 to 10 week build time. Its been 1 week(sigh)!

Got the white sheet in for visual appeal to the bare bottom.

I might have missed it, but what are the dimensions on the tank? Are you not worried about evaporation onto the soundbar and TV? Do you have a sump in the basement that everything is going to?! Looks clean, excited to see the details!

Dimensions are 60"x24"x24". It will have a enclosed canopy. It will be able to be lifted off if I need to. Im going to waterproof the underside. Ill have doors on the sides for feeding. Sump will be in the fish room down in the basement.

Looking great! Cant wait to see water running though this. Not sure if its safe to have that flow meter in the adjustable baffle chamber. Will be getting wet for sure.

Make sure you correct the AFR cradle. The cover side should be up front and is removed towards the skimmer. Remember the cover goes over the dirty roll side.
