My plan was to do plumbing today and put all livestock in the tank. But you never know...Yesterday my wife got stung me bee in her feet. Today her leg looked terrible. So swallow and dark brown. She was in so much pain. So she went to doctor, and i have to take care of my boy so my plans changed. All i could do was plumbing. Tommorow i check again make sure everything is tight and start put send and live rock, corals and fishes . Hope everything will go well. I hope those drain lines are o.k. they could be little shorter. Thanks guys.

O well. Everything was going well until yesterday.I turn on the system and... I got a leak in both return lines. One just moisture but you can feel when you touch with your hand a little water second on the picture one drop every minute. System is on and I put like 50% livestock. Just set in the tank and still have to make display. Still havea lot of staff in my 20 gal QT under T5. I'm really depressed. I have to fix that leak but I'm not sure how. I tight nut , do not want to brake glass. I put some teflon tape too.It looks like it is coming from between nut and glass and nut and thread. The second problem is my pressure.That pump <Gen-X 40> was so strong and powerfull in my 90, now the water coming from the nozzles really slow it can not even move the surface. Have no idea what is wrong...< water goes from pump to chiller and i have check valve, tee and to two overflows. After 4 days hard work the end is not what I was expected. I don't know is something stock in pipes or check valve defected??? I'm so depressed...

So on sunday I put rest of my corals in new tank. Yesterday and today I set all live rocks and corals in right place. So that how it looks. My camera is not so good. Looks pretty nice. I still did not fix thouse two issues. That leak is like 1 drop every half hour or longer. And that pressure I think is not right. Maybe somebody from Chicago area now some people who can help me???? I will look on internet try to find somebody. I still need to put some trim pieces and stain some, stain the doors to. Thanks for reading me thread.
