I did a water test today and had one small leak over the sump. It was where the hose barb fits to the upper fitting. I put some silicone around it and will do another test tomorrow.

Drained tank over the weekend and filled with saltwater. Didn't have enough water to fill the sump so I put a Hob filter in the tank to start the cycle. Will fill the sump up this weekend coming.

So i filled the sump up today and everything looks good. I don't have all the rock in the tank yet. I plan on working on getting the rest in there tomorrow. Here is what it looks like right now.
