Good golly that was horrible grammar. What I meant to say was "you might have said previously, but I don't remember."

I have 3x 175w MH Hamilton pendants. The plan was to do 4 (2per tank) but after thinking about it, if I off set the 3rd slightly away from the other 2 in the middle of the other tank then the darkest spots should be perfect for some softies and NPS.

Are you going to have float control switches on the return pumps? The only issue I see is if a snail gets into a drain on one of the tanks and reduces its output to the sump system but the return keeps going. Could lead to an overflow of that tank. Of course you may have already figured for that with a good screen on the overflows.

The overflows will all have strainers and the frag tanks aren't gonna have all that much in them to begin with other then coral. Plus my overflow should be able to handle upwards of 3x what my return can do so I could have an entire overflow blocked as long as the other is flowing ill be ok. Which if I don't find a clog in that kind of time frame shame on me lol.

Well, I moved lol. That was fun. I'm still getting everything straightened back up but I'm still making some sales here and there out of my 46. Been cutting more frags and looking for more corals but as for the frag tanks I haven't made any progress on them since the last post unfortunately. I'm gonna be running a water line into the new room to make everything easier next. From there ill probably start setting up the plumbing for the sumps and returns.

Hey now! That looks good! I saw 5 things I'd want! I think it's probably still to cold for shipping though.
