LOL...

That would be the correct question.... I intend to keep the level in the return chamber lower than the other two. I haven't figured out exactly what that level needs to be right now. I do know that when the pump shuts off there is virtually no drain back from the return line.

Well the tank is nearly clear. I will have to polish the water some and of course clean the glass off. Here are a few shots...

The rock is not scaped yet....I just put it in there while the water was cloudy and this is what it ended up looking like. I will work on the aquascape tomorrow. Also tomorrow I'm going to pick up some macro and a bit of LR just to help jump start the system...




From the Left side of the tank:


Right side:



I still have a ton of rock to place in the tank but these are the larger pieces... Tomorrow I will work on that and post more pics

So I have been bouncing around trying to decide what to do for lighting under my tank. I forgot all about all the LEDs that I have so I made my own...
