Bulk reef supply should have everything. Are you going with 1.5?

Bulk reef supply dies have everything but 50$ for a PVC gate valve seems outrageous

How are you making out with your plumbing I'm still doing research on pipe and pump size? Did you pick a pump for return yet?

I had a set back due to the floor being unlevel so haven't really been focused on plumbing...but I have a old mag 5 that imma use for now until I get a another one and I'm pretty sure imma use 1" holes for the over flow

Yay just got very lucky... Found some old glass panels that a friend gave me a while back, they sure just a little wider then the 55 just got to cut then to size...made making the sump that much easier

Go on liveaquaria.com they have almost everything you will need. Im running a 125 reef with a 55 gal refugium and i have a hang on the back over flow with a 1 inch drain and a 1/2 inch supply with a return pump (can't remember the name) with a flow of a little over 310gph.
