you guys are going to do fine with the plumbing just snug your bulkheads and then tighten to stop leaks, isnt that what you learned on your other sump carey?

i dig the concern over such a big tank. but your doing such a great job. so dont fret too much.

Thanks for the vote of confidence, but it's just in my nature to worry I guess. I know my b/f isn't happy with yet ANOTHER tank especially since moeny is tight right now. Just adds to my stress level, if anything were togo wrong I know there'd be heck to pay. But I;m gonna go slow and steady on this one, no quickie here.

most of those fish will be eaten by the eel.
i would also consider removing that substrate for something finer. nitrates are going to be a problem with that large substrate.

Going to be a lot finer in the 210. That's a pic of him in my 55. And I though he would eat them as well. But he has ignored everything in the tank. Even the puff and angel and nipped at food while he is eating it and he doesn't bother them and even let's the cleaners clean him. After he eats and seems like he likes it.

Just a matter of time in my opinion. But you might have better luck when you get the 210 up and running.
