    Wow yeah that is really well thought out.... Is your fuge going to be all the way to the right ran off the third outlet of your overflow? If so how does it go from there to that return section?

    Wow, weird when you look at the sump and ignore the tank. How big is the system and the sump looks way bigger than tank?

    Thanks, Yep, I'm on here but don't post much. I've been thinking about putting this all into a build thread. I've got one on my local clubs website, so I should just be able to migrate it all over.

    :) Thanks!

    Thanks!

    Yes, from left to right:

    ATO
    Sump
    Fuge

    In the back corner of the fuge is a small overflow box with a bulk head in it. The bulkhead connects to another in the return section of the sump.

    It's somewhat of an optical illusion because of the angle that I took the picture at. The tank itself is 40" x 24" x 26" high. 110g

    Just got mine built. I used two 40 breeders. I have one for a refugium and one with live rock, skimmer, and return pump. Hope it all works ok. My old one had no room at all.

    @MFTJohnson123 Id honestly be concerned about those power strips in the stand and right above those tanks. Not for fear of them falling in, im sure you secured them properly, but for fear of corrosion due to a high humidity and salty air. I have personal experience with this, and have seen more than one power strip with rusty hardware mounted in a stand. Id consider remounting them in a better location.

    Are you referring to this picture? If so, the skimmer overflow waste container is on the left - Avast Marine. There are two reactors to the right of the skimmer, one for carbon and the other for GFO. The sump chamber all the way to the right is a frag tank.

    I did mean left!! That's a great idea. Much easier, skimmer can always be skimming

    Well, you do still have to remove the cup for cleaning. Needed cleaning there. Guess I should have done that and changed the socks before I took that picture. :) But yeah, I really like having that waste collector.

    Wowww!!! I see I'm seriously out classed! GEEEEZ, Some of these tanks look like they've got NASA engineers running the filtration systems!
