Wink Carey's 90g FOWLR Build!

So I picked up a 90g drilled tank with a single overflow today. Has a skimmer and pump, a mag 9.5 for the return and a sealife 200 sump.

I'm debating selling it but unsure so I want you guys to help me decide.

First off I have NO IDEA how this holes in the bottom thing works. It's got 2 holes in the bottom but has 2 flex pipes going to the sump. Where does the water get returned from ans go through?

Here are ALOT of pictures I hope they can help you help me....

I think I figured out finally how to get the water into the first skimmer chamber but after that I'm lost. Does it fill to the top and overflow into the bioballs chamber?

I definitely think you should keep it! It would be nice as an aggressive fowlr!

That looks brand new! Did you get it from a 3rd party or did you get it form a store? I'm trying to understand getting it then selling it.... (I know you have a ton of tanks but seriously? Do you turn it for a profit?)

the water should overflow into the bioballs chamber, and where it says pro series is where the return pump should go. thats about all i can tell from the pics. give me an above shot of the sump and a pic inside the chamber in the tank

And the 1 inch pipe is for the drainage and 3/4 for the return, the elbow and insert should fit together with the nozzle on the end of that. get a good aquarium sealant for the bulkhead to put through the tank wait at least 48 hours for the sealant to dry then put a little more around the fitting to make sure you have a good seal! don't want any leaks
