It is an ASM G4X recirulating skimmer. It's supposed to be for tanks in the 300 range, but probably more for my size system about 220g total. It's doing a great job getting the gunk out of the water I'm pleased. I had it on the 72 as well but it never pulled much out but I think that had to do with I did a lot of PWCs and didn't have as nasty of water as I do right now.

Well all of the rockwork is done. I think we are happier with the outcome this time around then the last. I'm having to drain off a little bit of water to reduce the amount of water in the sump.

All in all it looks pretty good. Tomorrow I'll sit down and put together a list of everything I lost in this adventure....

I'm going to post a pic of the tank with the hood on and the lights fired up before going to bed...

OK guys so BEFORE Allen tries to take full credit for it I'm going to let you all know...
The rock placement THAT'S ON ME! He put it in there but I handed it to him and told him where to put them and how. I SOOOOOO KICK BUTT at Aquascaping (SP?) - Well at least the rock part. GO SUPERWIFE! Although he is better at the placement of the corals. My goodness we make a GREAT TEAM!

Oh and I really wish I would have thought to drink Jager Bombs ALL the other nights we stayed up to the wee hours of the morning, ESPECIALLY the night of the Tragedy!

SO, now I'm all REALLY wide awake and just a little buzzed and of course we are just about done for the night. UGH, I'll never get to sleep and I'll STILL be dragging tail tommrow. Oh or Maybe I'll just stay up and put all the corals in the new tank while Allen sleeps LOL J/K!

That canopy looks real nice. Does the front swing open? How do you get access to the tank?
