It was like Marc's from Melevsreef.com.

I had some leaking issues from a bad nipple I purchased, then I got that fixed, and the teflon tape didn't seal right when I put the new one in. After that was fixed, I got a slow (2-3 drops every 10 minutes or so) from the Mag7 seal. I dont have a picture of it (its tore down right now, as I rethink this).

I was thinking... Maybe I could build it to hang from the canopy? That would let it "leak" into the tank... and wouldnt be this huge thing behind the tank.

I also found a leak at one of the 90 degree angles feeding out of the SQWD (that would be easier to fix than the mag7 leak).

Use silicone grease on the seal. It's safe to use and should stop the leak.

Like used to seal aquariums, or something else?

Ah, I found it. I'll have some in about an hour or so. This goes on the inside of the mag seal?

It would go around where the O-ring is on the pump base?

Yes, right around that rubber o-ring on the pump body.

I just cracked the outer casing when I screwed in the nipple for the union for the intake. It is causing it to leak I already know where I can get one, but it will be sometime next week before it comes.

Well, Im finishing my sump/refuge and the plumbing to/from it today. I went looking for some LR today @ the local stores (well, 3 total), and didn't find any I liked. I have an ad out at the local club seeing if anybody has any extras for sale (I dont want to pay shipping... if I dont have to).

[update] Sump is finished, but drying. The teeth aren't perfect on the Refuge -> Return area teeth, but they are still pretty good.

And here is the tank as it is sitting right now...
