Alright, sump is finished (I think). I added an extra bead of silicon to each joint that I could reach. It seems like it bonded really well. The tube of silicon was next to the lexan panels at HD, and it says specifically for bonding lexan, but also bonds to glass. Hopefully it holds up. I put a LOT of it on as it doesn't really matter what it looks like as long as it functions (How often will you here me say that??). It also said good for marine applications, and it does not have any additives like mildew control or what have you. From what I have read, it should be safe. I just hope when I start running 600GPH through it, the panels hold up.
I have the bulkheads installed in the tank, along with the plumbing for the overflow and return. Unfortunately, the tubing I ordered from BRS doesn't fit properly, which is weird (both the pump, and the outflow bulkhead). It is a 1" hole out of the tank, and a 1" bulkhead, but the hose barb accepts 1 1/4" hose. Go figure. The 3/4" tubing ID for the return fits the eheim, but the stuff they sent is super thick, and the OD doesn't fit into the compression fitting. So, more HD plumbing aisle time for me I guess.
Lights I will have Monday, as well as salt and my vortechs, rack mount power supply, and heater. Rock and sand has not shipped yet as far as I know, so I suppose I will wait for that before I start to fill 'er up. Picked up a Reef Master Test Kit from API, and have a refractometer. I think I have all the parts but the hose either here or on the way.
I am going to use a 27W CF
fixture for the refugium... I have an extra here already.
Am I missing anything?
