Just the seal on the bottom blew... (of the sump) but the floor is too uneven so I'm just going to try and use Rubbermaid totes for now. There isn't enough clearance to build any sort of support for the tank... plus now I can put a second tank in my house .

I think we have a verifiable diagnosis of MTS (multiple tank syndrome) in the beginning stages. I don't believe there are any treatments to help you. Your only chance at curing yourself is to run out of money. Good luck!:p

Sorry I took so long had some leak issues with my LED cooling so I needed to get that fixed before I took pictures. Well here they are.

15 Yellow 20 White and 25 blue.





A view of them mounted.


FTS with the lights on.


A couple of pics of my new Rubbermaid sump...

Not sure what to say about the lighting as i like the look but i am curious (as i want to try it on my 20). Can you put pics up of just 1 color light on the tank? Looks great by the way. Those bottom plastic makeshift sump looks iffy though. looks like its gonna bust.
