    Been working very hard at getting all the plumbing done for the last 2 weeks, I'm sick of plumbing now for sure! It's coming along nicely though and I hope to be done by next weekend. I have to get the pump plumbed up to the discharge, final tank connections, reactor manifold over my skimmer section, and finish the drains for the frag tank. I also connected the 2 sumps together and did a leak test and I'm happy to report it went well. I had to get the sumps perfectly plumb to get them to bulkhead together.

    Me too, I'm not going to know what to do with myself when I get done! Between shear costs and just the crazy amount of work that it requires to do the project right, it takes a long time. I remember doing the plumbing for my 125 in one night, lol!

    I took a break from plumbing today and got all of my electrical cords on the light rack organized. I still have to get the apex all setup but now everything is organized.




    I also grounded the entire light rack so there is no chance I can kill myself if something shorts out.

    Today I got the reactor area mapped out and the header put up. It's going to be nice to have these things out from under a stand and at eye level! Plumbing to commence tomorrow and then that will be done.

    Yeah once you go this far the next step would be you designing a public aquarium setup

    I decided to make a holder for the reactor tubing this morning, I put a couple extra holes in it for anything down the road.

    Thanks JJ, it's getting there. Yea im running two 1" Sea Swirl returns and one 1" normal return. I'm going to have 4 MP40's though too, not just the Swirls. I'm trying to cover the center of the tank a little more, that's the reason for the Swirls.
