Thanks cmor! I made sure everything was perfect this time around since it was my first time with a sump and all.. but now that i come to think of it.. i guess i really only have a refugium. I'm not running a skimmer or any type of reactors.. and there's just a refugium. I store the heater in there.. but that's about it. I did get a small HOB filter that i plan to fill with carbon and some other stuff.. Just to see what it does and if it makes a difference. :p

And yeah harmy i know what your saying. The first time i had to to turn the return pump off to test it, i made sure my finger was on the switch to turn it back on just incase my sump was going to overflow lol.

Thanks TC. I've spent so much time on this tank to make sure it was just perfect. Only thing that i MIGHT change.. is the return. In the first video, you can see that the return hose just goes directly on to the bulkhead.. when i really should have used a 3/4" 90degree elbow. That way the hose didn't have to bend. I've been running it since sunday and nothing leaks or anything like that.. but the design is crap lol.

Got it on ebay.. but made the mistake of buying the one that needs to be tapped in to the plumbing.. and not a portable one that can be plugged right in to the faucet or hose. Then.. got an adapter for it.. but the adapter doesn't fit any of my faucets or hoses.. sooo... yeah.
