that's a different way to look at it. hes saying to add CUC and corals, getting the tank "habitat" established, then add the fish

Well here it is. My first attempt at a DIY project. Now to sit back and drink a beer while it dries! Man I hope it holds!

Ok just filled my first sump compartment with water. If it holds through the night I will finish building it. If not I will step back and rethink my approach.

One piece at a time. Silicone one side good and that should hold or apply painters tape to the "inside" and apply with a finger/rod or other applicator. Does that make sense?

It makes sense. It's gonna be tough getting silicone on both sides. Specially in a 1 in gap!

I put a bead of silicone then slid my baffle into place and added another bead on the other side. Then I smoothed both heads out with a stick and a smooth rounded object on the end. It worked pretty well for me, I hope it makes sense.
