It looks like you're being really diligent in your process of building this, maybe once you've finished you could make a nice little write up with pictures and such, detailing your project, maybe even including whatever specs and measurements you've recorded.

That way someone else might benefit from all this knowledge you've gained through your experience

Or if that sounds like too much work then they could probably just figure it out like you did lol.

lol yeah im lazy thats why i really wanted to find a write up on it.

i dont know how much of a read it would be. ive noticed that i kind of read like stereo instuctions. but i will do my best.

i was cutting the baffle loose that was supposed to be my refugium section. it shattered to pieces when i put a little determination to move it to it. so now im committed to the box ive built. eh not really a box. but you get what i mean.


new box for return pump

shattered
