Ok so the tank is full and circulating water it was making a lot of noise so turned the flow down on the return and a lot quieter now, no leaks too so everything is going perfect, so far, touch wood and all that.
These Powerheads look like there doing a great job too.

Didn't read the whole thread. What are you using for overflows?

My tank is drilled and I have a corner overflow, I'll try post a video if I can.

Here's a video of it all running, I just put the lights on to see what it looks like.

Hey all, is there a way I can make the drainage quieter? I can hear like a sucking noise coming from the drain just wondering if I can stop this or at least make it quieter?

So after two days leak test all is well and good with no leaks, happy days! I started sticking my rockscape together yesterday so should be able to stick it in the tank after I've drained the tap water out.
I'm not gonna start filling with ro water yet as I'm going on holiday next week so I'll be starting the cycle the week after.
Few questions, what's the best thing to put in my sump? I was gonna go for a refugium, is this the best option?
And on the video not sure if you can see it but on the sand bed I'm getting what looks like a disco from my lights, is there anyway to stop the 'party'?

Google "durso standpipe". This will quiet your overflow down.

Where is the skimmer? Aren't you going to put a protein skimmer in the sump?

Cool, will google that now, thanks.

Yeah the skimmer is in the sump, well hanging off the left side of it, I won't be able to actually fit it in the sump til I upgrade to a bigger one in about a years time, the skimmer isn't on in the video, I was only checking for leaks so didn't think I needed it on just yet.
