Krylon fusion. Give it a week to fully cure if you can wait that long.

A lot of planning . I made the scrubber and mounted that . Then I hung the overflow on the tank and sat there looking at it until the best plan came to me . After that it's just putting the pieces of the puzzle together to make it how I wanted it. I know that's not a great explanation lol . I guess you could say I placed my filtration and equipment where I wanted it and went from there.

Not yet. It's a little over 1/4 of the way full. Should be done sometime saturday night since the ro will be in use making pwc water for the 180. I should have a decent amount of adjustment for the scrubber screen with the valve . I will find out soon enough if everything will work out.
