looks real good! How did you wire it? Is there wires from wall? Or is it a split cord?

Now for my super ghetto sump. The good thing is it didn't cost me anything and the filter sock prevents bubbles in the sump. Don't worry, this is VERY temporary It will be replaced after the lights. it does the job for now but. I needed to get this thing up cause I was getting compaints about the tank sitting in the formal living room cycling live rock for 2 months I don't know why.

Pic 1 - Yes my filter sock is held just below the rim of the sump with tie wraps. That is my Sicce 5.0 pump in the bottom right corner. It flows 1300 GPH but is far from silent. I would not recommend this pump in applications where noise is an issue. If I had it to do over again I would have gone with 2 mag 7's
Pic 2 - Yes that is what I call now a HOS (hang on sump) octopus skimmer. It works well and pulls some nasty stuff out of the H20 I had to rig an extension on the skimmer intake cause it has metric PVC and all I had was English. It is amazing what you can do with teflon tape

It is wired from the wall. It is a separate 20 amp breaker. this is version 1.0. I have alot of work to do but I REALLY like the idea and versatility.
