    JRod's 240 Newly Acquired from Static

    Hey guys here is the post for the 240 that I recently purchased from Static. Pictures coming shortly. I want to thank everyone involved who helped me moved the beast. I also want to thank Murf who has helped me with mapping out the plumbing and putting in the sump. Also want to thank Tim for putting together the sump.

    This was from last Saturday moving the tank and stand into the general area of where the tank is going to stay. Got some painting to finish up on as well.

    Murf and I (mainly Murf) came up with an idea of where to mount the dart pump. going to make a little wooden platform for it. Hopefully will finish the rest of that plumbing tonight after work.
