Not much progress. Work, Halloween parties, family in from out of town and weekend sports have taken over for the moment. It sucks because I'm so close. I did order a Aqua Lifter Pump though to install in the hood as well. I just need some time.
I'm also looking around for a 15gallon tall tank to redo the sump. The power went out for about 15mins this week and let's just say it was scary close. I need some more play in the sump volume. I'm glad I work out of the house
