Okay, after much wrangling I got my tank, it is not a 180, but a 240. WOW

The question I now have is on the plumbing.
The tank has dual overflows splitting the back of the tank into thirds. It came drilled with a 1.5" and 1" hole in each. I am reducing down the 1.5" to a 1.25" Durso overflow & one will go to the 50 gal sump, while the other is reduced down to 1" and into the fuge. I am going to elevate the fuge and have it drain into the sump. The pump is an external Little Giant 4MDXQ with 1" in & out. I will T off the line to each overflow and the furthest one away will be reduced down to .75".

My question is will this work? Any ideas or suggestions will be deeply appreciated.Thanks.

It's not a dress, it's a kilt.

How much flow does the little giant have? Sounds like a lot of complex plumbing! Wow....have you looked at www.melevsreef.com check out the link to his 280 and the plumbing he did there. It may help you out...I'm not so lucky to have a nice new 240 to deal with!!

Congrats on the new tank! I can't wait to see pics!!!!!
