silicone has a skin on it now. some of the panels where a TIGHT fit. me pushing on the sides of the aquarium to get any amount of flex so i could turn the panels sideways

return pump maybe a snug fit. i should beable to fit my choice of 3-5 different brand names of skimmer in my skimmer bay.
and i think i was able to get almost half of the tank for use as a fuge.


anyway here are some pics.

hey tanks, the pictures dont show all my mistakes that i know are there. and as long as i can get sweety pies bluerays back out and it holds water i will say it was successful. well that and i can fit a return pump in there.

4" is all i got. a magdrive 9.5 should fit.

skimmer compartment is 18x10 and fuge area is 18x18

Nice amount of space for a skimmer and a great fuge area too. Great job!

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

thanks carey. again heres hoping that it all works out.

im soooo close to getting this sump operational. i still need an over flow and pump. the substrate, rock, and macro. oh and plumbing. i think that next payday i maybe able to get all that.

skimmer will have to wait another 2 weeks after that.
