No worries! I know that life happens.
Sorry to hear about this problem. I haven't had any issues with the tank as of yet. Everything is working as it should. Are you still having the issue with the new one?Tupes, I went with a jbj65 last March. Since then I had to replace the tank once and again shortly. The back divider has buckled (curved) to a point where sand seeps into the back sump area. Have you had this problem? Seems like there is too much pressure on the middle back compartment.
That's not good! What did JBJ say?Tupes, I went with a jbj65 last March. Since then I had to replace the tank once and again shortly.

Wow, nice work!Progress being made. Molding is on, drawer is almost finished. The drawer I'll have a sort of top which when opened it will act as a work surface. It'll be used to store all my fragging equipment. The right side will have 2 shelves installed the left will have a 10 gallon aquarium as my ato reservoir. Going to do another coat of white on the inside then I'm going to put a clear sealer. Then my better half is going too have her way with it and paint the exterior. I also have leds ordered with will be on the inside that will be controlled with my apex to come on when the doors open.
There is a baffle/brace between the pumps, although this brace came loose on my freshwater tank. Consider using two pumps for redundancy. On my reef I have a mighty Jet DC pump and a Sicce 1.5 AC pumpGreat thread here, and your setup looks awesome. I have a JBJ 65 on the way and expected to arrive soon, and looking to upgrade stock pumps to a Vectra S1 (keeping it set to rather low end of it's power).
Could you please comment how you accomplished your pump upgrade? It appears the the tanks are now shipping with a large brace/divider between the two pump sections which would make it difficult to place one pump in the middle. Perhaps they've started adding this bracket as some members commented about bowing and sand seepage into the rear section. I'm hoping that it's still an option to upgrade to one single DC pump despite the added brace. Thanks!
