Simply you have 2 drains and one return.
1 drain about closed enough to create a syphon and second pipe is about 2-3" higher getting little water through.

Ok so today its the big day.I have to move the tank from outside in the garage to the basement.. this is not going to be easy, here is my plan.I cut a sheet of plywood a little bigger then the tank and placed a sheet of carpet for the tank to rest on.I plan on screwing 2x4s to the stairs to make a ramp and sliding it down.

So i have some bad news... My yellow tang and powder brown tang died. for the first few hours after the transfer everything was fine. i don't know what happened. all of a sudden they stopped swimming. all my levels are fine. and to add even more bad news i found my lawnmower blenny jumped out of my old tank. i found him during the move. i am not happy right now. thats 3 fish in 24 hours. at this point i am really considering just doing sps corals and very few fish.

Its a cement paver, I thought it looked cool in the old tank so I put it in the new one.
