Thanks. Have given this a try a try and so far so good on the sump and tank. Next is to check the wire and return pipes at the connection point. Need to wait for my RO parts to arrive to make some water.

The pics are awesome, thanks. I am starting some ideas on the aquascaping side. Will post pics when I start getting things in place. Thanks again

Also, fired the skimmer up today and was faces with uncontrollable leaks from the base of the cup and the red control valves. It's a 16 month old proskim g220 that came with the tank. It was left standing dry for 2 months.

My immediate guess is the salt may have corroded the plastics/rubbers when it's dried?

Not sure what to do? Try and order spares or replace.

Same skimmer new is £69. Or should I take this opportunity to upgrade to a new hang on skimmer? If upgrading, what should I go for and how much is a reasonable price to pay for a good and reliable piece of kit?

Many thanks
