Thanks!
The MLC will support 6 pods so I'm going to order an additional 2 but I've decided to get the MidnightRed to go with the nocturnal blues.....it should create a cool look. depending on how it goes I may add 2 more pods to max out the MLC..

So I got the baffles in the Sump. I have enough room to make a small fuge in the sump and will also have the dedicated 5g fuge down the road. Right now the little chamber (about 4.5g) will serve as my fuge.

My sump is set up as follows...

1st: Skimmer Section bubble trap (3 baffles OUO configuration)
2nd: Fuge section
3rd: Return section about 6.5g

The tank is almost full of newly made RO/DI...I'm going to let it sit over night to bring it to temp and double check the tank for leaks then dump salt in and get things mixed up.

That's the only socks I wear....

Back to the tank..

The baffles are set in the sump...looks decent.

I picked up the rest of the plumbing today. I also ordered a custom made Durso Standpipe, should be here Monday or Tuesday.

I'm draining the tank now so I can level the stand. After filling the the tank the stand is slightly out of level and I want it perfect. So the water is coming out and I will shim the stand, refill, add salt, and then put sand in the tank...I expect to have the rock in the tank tomorrow.

Great thread Zig. That stand looks great, and the LEDs look great too! I love the tile, and the color. Good work. You need to get those Octopus pulls installed!

Man, we are neck and neck in the marathon to water
