Silicon does not adhere very well to acrylics long term (it will start to leak over time). Acrylic glue won't stick to glass very well either. If the sump is glass, use glass baffles.

Ok for my sump I was thinking the skimmer section to be 12", the refugium section to be 12", and the return section to be 8.5".does this sound OK? All and any suggestions are welcome!!!!

Fist wall will be 10 inches high as well as the second wall then the divider and the last wall will be 9 inches. I think this will work?

After talking with Mr. X i went with 12"x17 1/4" baffles for my sump. They should be ready early next week. I'm getting excited that it finally slowly but surely starting to come together!

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Just wait til you start adding livestock! Thats a really fun part of a setup. ALthough for me putting together the tank and equipment is a great rush too. lol

Just go slow and take your time though, the best advice you will get ever regarding saltwater.

That was one of the first things read when joining this forum. I have been doing research and trying to learn about stuff for the past year and a half. I am Finally starting to make the build. Even that is going slow!
