Maybe I should have red the first pages to know your setup better however if you have a drilled tank then you should have no fear open all throttles and let er rip. If your using a syphon overflow system then is there enough room in your tank to hold all the extra water from the sump without overflowing? That last one would be my only fear if I were you.
you need to look at the previous posts. Lol. I was jus a little weary to leave it for 10+ hrs. Now I am fine with it. I added sand to the sump and I has to take out a little bit of water due to it rising. It is running good now I was just havering a heater issue. The heat was barely reaching 75degrees. Ideal I wanted it 78-80. Because I want to out my livestock from my other tank in there.

Your whole system is pretty exposed. You can cover it more to retain heat. Add another heater or increase the temp in the room.
