Thank goodness, it doesn't leak!!!!!!! :lol:  Had water in it Saturday afternoon till Sunday afternoon.  Ran both  pumps for about six to eight hours with very little problems.  Had a couple of bulkheads that were dripping slightly, but thanks to Rick's Big A-- channellocks I was able sinch them down.  And The drain that I installed into he sump makes for a great way to drain the entire system.  Thanks for all the support and words of encouragement from everyone.  Next step will be to skin out the stand and build the canopy.  I'll keep you all posted.

Well, a Mag 7 has been plumbed in to drive the refugium and the protein skimmer.  All works well, and circulates between the two nicely.  I plumbed in a stub out on the same line for the future installation of a calcium reactor.  The system is pretty much complete at this point, and the savings plan to buy the rock, which is my next step, has begun. Feel free to stop by and take a gander if you are in the area.

Looks pretty nice John.  Great Job.  Now all you need is some rock and frags.  I have frags I can donate and possibly some old dead fiji rock ( I need to look in the storage shed).

Your tank

Dashia,

How is your tank doing these days?  Just curious if the reduced feeding helped with the small algae problem that was starting?

Wow, that looks great John and Angela!  Very nice.  I can attest that Dashia's nuked rock is working out just fine in my tank.  We have two of her rocks, one that we fondly call "Dashia Cove".    Really coming along nicely - keep us posted with pics!

Rick-
Tank is great. It is very plain though. I lost all my corals, etc... in the big "DO OVER" a few months ago. I don't have any algae...knock on wood. I treated the couple pieces that were starting to have issues with Lye and lost a couple emerald crabs in the process...but the algae is gone. Fish are great. Thanks for asking.
