Yeah I will, once my 180 is up and running top notch with a few other fish in it with the LR I have curing moved in their. In fact I won't even need all 50 pounds for the 180 so I could save a piece or two for a reef tank

Sorry to hear the news Kevin. But on the bright side, with all the tears we shed you'll have enough sw to start the tank <g>

Hahahaha i definitely could!

Well, here's a short update, but there is more to come in a couple hours since i'm still working on a couple things.

Here's the glass-holes overflow and return kit, however, thanks to neilanh with his great advice, i've decided not to drill the tank for the return line. I'm going to use two 90degree elbows that will go over the tank, and i'll just connect my loc-line to the end. Loc-line is pretty cool, they're like ball-joints.



Here's the small overflow box. Deciding on whether to make teeth.. or to just get black eggcrate and work something out.



Here's the quiteone pump that i got. What i really like about this, it the flow dial, it has 6ft max head height(but i only have 4), and it's actually uber small. It can also run wet or dry, but since it's really small, and takes up almost no space, i'm probably going to just stick it in the sump and run it wet. We'll see.



Here's how small it is compared to the 10G tank:



So yeah.. that's all for now, but expect more pictures in a couple hours.


ilostnemo: What do you mean exactly? Do they make a different light for what? A light fixture/pendant doesn't come with the tank. It's just the tank... if that's what you meant.

Not sure, but it has the full 296gph at 6ft of head height, so i imagine it would still be 296gph at 4ft. It also has a flow dial so you can adjust how much flow is going on. So it looks like a good pump, but only time will tell.
