@Waterbox Aquariums love your tanks, especially the dual return nozzles, however, is there any thought to running another return line to the sump to allow for redundant pumps? Maybe have it tee’d in the sump by default, but would allow those who want to have the extra piece of mind to be able to run two pumps.

Thanks for the kind words. I been busting my butt on setting it up and taking my time. As soon I get doors (waiting for them to send one for the 3rd attempt. Some day) it's going to come together. . If u have a 57w aquauv. Its identical to mine. Fits right there! 25w and 57 is same.

I’ll have to give it a shot then! Is it sticking out the back of the stand though? My tank is sitting 2” from the wall. Maybe 3. But I’ll measure it out tomorrow and see.

What did you use to mount it?

Our 6026 Peninsula will one day be sitting here if I can find the help to get the tank up on the stand. One place wanted $450 just to move from garage to stand another place said they couldn't do it but will rent me 4 suction cups and a Jack stand for $140 but still got to get 4 strong guys together at the same time being a double right side amputee I can't help much. But once it's up there I can finish it.

I would help you in a minute if I could!!! But yes. Get some help. It took an hour for four of us to move mine. Being ¾” thick it was incredibly heavy. Much MUCH heavier than our 265g ½” that was replaced by the waterbox
