Got sump and most of plumbing done. Waiting on pump and loc-line for overflows. Sump is a eshopps r-300. Think I'm going to go with a triton 5 for the pump.

Looks nice, you are ahead of me. I'm trying to figure out what the plumbing should look like in the overflows, do you know what you are doing there yet?

Yeah got it in place but didn't glue any of it. My drain holes in tank are 1 in so I used fittings to increase the pipe size to 1 1/2. Return line just I in up to elbow that will connect to lock-line. Still waiting on lock-line to get here. I'll see if I can pull one and take pic.

Here's a pic of drain line. I drilled hole in top but not sure if large enough. I basically used the design of the aqueon overflows but put it together myself.

Got pump today and finished plumbing. Added freshwater to clean everything and refilled with treated saltwater once was empty.

Thanks. Just finished adding sand. Once it clears hope to add rock. I'll post more pics once have rock in. I'll need some suggestions on aquascape.

Not mine, but I love it. He used acrylic rods and drilled his rock.

Here are a couple pics of mine, I used 1/2 inch PVC because I couldn't find the rods at lowes.
