If I have a sump is there any point in running a hob or canister as well?

Not really. Occasionally if you had something happen to the tank and you wanted to run some extra carbon it would be ok, but those filters would need regular maintenance or they will eventually produce nitrates. A filter sock is plenty.

My overflow and pump came today! Christmas party tomorrow but will be working on the plumbing this weekend!

Just not sure if it would be okay to test it with tap water first to make sure everything is okay? I'm still buying distilled water. An RODI is next on my list.

I had that bug too! Started with one small Betta tank and turned into nine freshwater tanks and one saltwater tank. Not including the Betta tanks I still have running lol! (I'm already dreaming and planning my next upgrade after this one in a year or two lol)

I haven't progressed in this build unfortunately. It's still sitting where I left it in my last picture. I am hoping to perhaps drill the tank and get the overflow box siliconed in but time is running short - my boyfriend and I leave for Florida on Saturday for a week.

So I hope to have the plumbing maybe dry fitted before we leave but definitely functional within the week we return!

Glad to know someone is following along

Wish I could say I've made progress but I've been so busy! Between getting registered for next term and getting ready to go on holidays tomorrow I haven't been able to do much other than my water changes on my freshwater tanks and one saltwater. I'm back on the 27th though and you can be sure I'll be working on it on then!!

I have so many ideas floating in my head. Trying to decide how to wrap the stand and what kind of doors I'm going to put on. Thinking about building a canopy for the LED so it lights up the tank rather than the entire room.

I promise when I do get some work done on it I'll keep you updated though.
