Acrylic tank setup I've been working hard on!

This has been a couple year project finally coming together. My plan for this aquarium is to do a colony of demasoni and yellow labs. I bought the tank off craigslist at the end of 2013 and did a little bit of scratch removal/restoration. I was going to buy the reef savvy ghost overflow but after a year of waiting I gave up and found a very nice "copy" on ebay. I also had a cabinet/stand built just for this project. After almost another year of procrastinating and doing more research I finally started to put it all together in August. Here is where I am at now:

You may end up with issues in all that floss getting clogged and backing the sump up causing return pump chamber to go dry I've been there myself.

Nice looking backdrop though that's spot on

Thanks, the backdrop came from universal rocks. I have been keeping an eye on the flow to the return pump. I have switched from the quilting floss to the pink mat to improve flow
