    Ok I’ll work on it. Won’t be able to complete it until base of tank and sump are in the house and glass is set. All going to happen soon. Had to add more fasteners to the sump. Got busy a forgot to screw off the dividers and only went around the edges. Realized it when I started water testing it. Oops. Well all done now and patched up just need to run some epoxy over the patches i.e. where I missed and put holes were I didn’t want them. Ya that sucked but heck stuff happens. Once sump tests out ok everything will come inside from the garage and assemble together.

    Once glass is in and overflow work is done then I’ll need to figure out the return outlets above the tank then rock ‘n’ roll.

    I coated the patches in the sump where I put holes through while adding in the screws to the sump and coated the over flow with epoxy. The overflow box only needed it so the silicone would stick to the PVC and then to the glass. You know because PVC and silicone don't seal together well. Don't need the whole tank draining into the sump.
