Excellent!
Is your tank wood trim finish or did you add the wood to the tank corners and top/bottom?

I really like the way that looks

My laptop monitor is getting fuzzily bad and the picture of your overflow made my eyes hurt trying to figure out what I was looking at.

Nice plumbing. Very clean. Hope the RIO holds up for you as a return.

Ya it took a little bit of work on the plumbing, the drains consist of 2- 1 1/4" Thin wall PVC and return is 3/4" The return is pushing around 1000-1100 GPH. I hope the RIO holds up as well i have had good luck with RIO's so im not too worried but you know how that goes (knock on wood). I was going to go with a Mag Drive but too spendy for my budget. The top and bottom of the trim is the actual tank trim, corner pieces i made those myself.
