First pic is to show how the 55 sits inside the stand. Second pic is to show how the skimmer is gonna sit. Just trying to figure out a fix for the skimmer cup.. Really want it to come out the front

Doors are on, only have one slight mess up. It seems as though someone thought it would be funny to mix the door hinges together at lowes and i was the lucky recepient of said wrong hinge. Oh well, im off tomorrow so ill take care of it. Also grabbed a few bulkheads while at work today so everything is about ready to piece together. Just need a return pump (almost had a mag 24 from work but didnt work out)

Ty ty!! Def more than excited to get it up and running!! Gonna prob water test it tonight (the sump) it doesnt need to be 100% waterproof between chambers but it needs to direct flow decently. Who knows maybe ill get lucky the first time around. As for going back to black, really didnt want to but our new livingroom furniture is black so it actually ties the room together nicely

Water tested the baffles just now... Seems to be holding up well, even against the monsoon of a flow i just ran threw it with my skimmer pump. So next up is to 1) order my return pump (thank you jesse) and 2) drain the 55, move it, screw stand together, put 55 back... And start putting the tank up!!!

The pretty much finished product. The second pic is to show the chambered refugium sitting below the tank, keep in mind its a 55g tank.... Still hard to grasp the sheer size of this refugium.
