Nice!
Jerry rigged is the only way to do anything in this hobby.

I wish I had space for a refugium.

Run dual heaters. Only reason id ever suggest this is because 1) it ensures youre not overworking a single heater 2) itll prevent hot/comd spots (assuming you run them on different ends) and most importantly 3) if one heater ever craps out in te middle of the night, dont gotta worry about losing everything

Oh and flex tubing works great for beginner or temporary setups but id get a more permanent rigid tubing installed at some point. Just make sure you install check valves, ball valves, and quick disconnects where needed

Okay, I've run into a problem other than my rocks aren't here yet.
I need a skimmer that's shorter than two feet.
My stand is really short, any ideas?

Build a footer for your stand to sit on, itll give you extra clearance. I have 32.5" of usable clearance under my stand now. Up from 27. Most would prob say that this idea is bad, however i feel that when it comes to larger sw tanks, we shouldnt sacrifice on skimmer selection.

Filling up today.

Been making r/o for a day now.
Tomorrow I'm going to get live rock and it will be running.

My dry rock hasn't gotten here yet though. Been about a month since I ordered it...

Well don't fill it up the whole way! The rocks will displace your water. BTW, what is that under the tank?

I can't lol. I'm using a 55 gallon to mix and as it fills I pump the water over.
So it's half full until tomorrow.
And that's my sump.
