  1. Looking great Dan. Once this virus run is over I’m looking to get back into it too.
  2. I was referring to the overflow I designed. If you don't plan to add a dump later on, than the all in one tank is the way to go. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I like the glass. It doesn't scratch as easy and it is really clear. Modern look and the perfect size for a nano. The more water volume the better so if you can get a glass tank with a different overflow system do it.Mine works great but still... It's not ideal. Thanks for the bump.

  4. Yes, I finished the sump and added it to the tank with no problems. The system works very nice and it is dead quite. In fact all I can hear is the refrigerator . I will add pictures when I can as I am extremely busy with my job at this point.
  5. So like I said in the previous post I will add a sump on the other side of the wall. I was working on a dead silent diy pvc overflow, I would say fail proof since I am adding a aqua-lifter and a second typical overflow to handle the extra water. I made the main overflow out of 1" pvc. The modifications I have done to the typical diy overflow makes it completely silent. Imagine a herbie overflow but this one is hanging on the back instead of the bottom. I raised the T to where I wanted my water level to be when pump is off. Than I removed the U that comes to the surface to skimm the surface. That's not needed because the back chamber acts as a surface skimmer already. Instead of letting the air get sucked in I added a 5/8 tube that will start a full siphon when the return pump starts and reaches the 5/8 tube. The tube is small enough to be able to break the full siphon when power goes out or for maintenance, however the flow will start again because the small 5/8 tube is short enough and let's air in when pump goes off. I also have another overflow for the extra water and to handle the flow in case the full siphon stops working for any reason. Here is a photo with the idea spread on paper. And a video with my testing. The return pump is quite one 4000. It can push 10 feet and max flow is 1000+ gph I dialed the pump to 50% because I won't need more flow that 500gph. I also tested the pump on maximum and I opened the valve of the main overflow to max and the pump couldn't keep up. I hope I am not too confusing. https://vimeo.com/151217935 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I am planning to add a sump on the other side of the wall, in the garage, and use it as a frag thank / refugium, More live rock, larger skimmer and reactors. I think a 40 gallon breeder would do it. For the overflow I am currently testing a diy pvc overflow and it works. Of course I will have float switches and aqua lifter sucking the air that can accumulate with time in the tube and stop the siphon. I will post as I do it. But for now it will be the planning, than the doing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. I have a system you might be interested in, Pm me. everything you need including bleached rock,stand canopy, 50gal acrylic tank with bean animal overflow, sump, led light, SRO 2000 skimmer, MP40w, etc,
  9. got anything left for me? i want 2 fire shrimp and 2 cleaner shrimp
  10. Here is a little update: I got two BRS dozer pumps for two part dozing. For the dozing containers, I got two 1500ml clear containers from tap plastics. They drilled the lids for me to be able to run the float switch wire and acrylic tube. I also got some square acrylic and made the float switch holder. This way I can get notified if I'm running low on solution or if something goes wrong with this system. I am now using the dozers for the frag tank. I also added a float switch to the ato tank to notify me when I have 2 days left of rodi water. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I just picked up a bunch of frags from Danik and let me tell you... Unbelievable!!! Thanks a lot for all the frags and rock and water for my brand new frag tank! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I was taken by surprise! and not quite ready with the tank for about 20 frags or so but I think I will give it a try. PM sent
  13. Thank you! It took me a while to figure out how to set it up. I am still dealing with codes for the jebao and other things like alarms. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks! I needed to hide the cables somehow, and at the same time be accessible. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I got a new toy as a gift. Neptune system w/ph lab grade, breakout box and the jebao to apex connection. I love this thing. I set it up after doing a lot of research. I reorganized everything with the new toys. I put hinges on the panel so I can move it and hide all the cables behind it along with the main power strip for things that don't need control.
