Heh... yeah... the power strip was moved a minute after I took the picture... not an issue. Same with the overflow tubes, those got tied down with metal U-brackets. Already have the drip line in plans for the cords... just need to get the power strip in the mail.

You know, I actually like the waterfall sound created from my return lines... I pointed them up so they ripple the surface of the water. (it's otherwise silent pointed down) Always a fan of the running water sound.

This is only a "dry" run with tap water to make sure everything works... actual setup will be done soon.

Looks great! Keep the progress pics coming? What do you have planned?

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

Will be doing a reef out of this 60... already have 60 pounds of rocks from www.hirocks.com and plan to get another 40 pounds of Fiji/Gulf from www.LR.com. 2" sand bed of Coralife Aragamax Oolitic sand, with maybe 2 clowns, 2-3 other small fish (NOT damsels), and a cleaning crew of snails/crabs. Once water stabilizes, I'll throw on some 4X65w PC or (2) 175/250 MH retrofit lights and go for some softies like bubble tip... don't care too much for clams, but would like to shoot for an anemone for my clowns a year or so down the line.

Need to pick up some LR rubble for the sump... but other than that, it's pretty much done. It's nice not having to worry about the size of tank I can put under the tank... with no front center brace, I can fit almost anything smaller than a 55 gal.
