Working on the tank today... Salt stains suck. Anywho, while cleaning more damage is apparent. One of the PVC tubes was broke and just sitting on there. The old silicone holding the pieces in my sump together is no longer holding. Looking like I will be rebuilding that. Hard to say how I'm gonna do it seeing I have no clue what I'm doing lol. And what the heck are these worm things??? One more question... What is this black thing... Do I need it? Looks homemade.

Is that black thing a homemade overflow box? I see the slotted edge across the top. Can't tell from the pic.

First two weeks with my tank, I kept waking up to a wet carpet. Better to find the breaks now than later!

Is it not coming off because of the silicone? If so, this may help....

It's glued I think.... Into this black thing!

I can twist the bottom PVC pipe but it def does not come off.

The black part is the bulkhead adapter, they are fairly inexpensive (about $3-$5 depending on the size) then just buy PVC at your local hardware store.
