    So I installed my Gyre pump and love this thing. I kicks up some serious detritus.

    I had City Glass make some 4" wide pieces of glass to install at each end of the tank to keep splashing down from the wave boxes;

    That shows a lot of pride in their product when they package it like that. I'm hoping Santa brings one for me this year.

    Hey Murph! I have always loved this tank, and am glad to see that it just keeps evolving. The new equipment looks great. Can't wait to see it in person again one of these days.

    So I made a holder for filter socks. I used 4" PVC and a J hook.

    I cut them 12" and drilled a bunch of 1" holes in the PVC tubes;




    The Filter sock fits right in the tube;


    Then I drilled holes that line up with the holes on the J hook and zip tied it to the tube;


    It sits in the sump just below the rim;


    I cut the tubes and put on a 45* fitting and an 11" down spout that fits in the sock;

    I added my two female Crosshatch Triggerfish to the tank. They have been in QT for two weeks.


    One has frayed fins so I put her back in QT and will medicate with antibacterials;

    That's a neat idea with the PVC filter holders.
