The view from my couch, the base footer does lift the entire tank up 6" so it looks slightly too tall, but after a day or two of looking at it, im starting to like it. Everythings coming together nicely. Hoping to get the plumbing sorted out later today.

Running the temporary plumbing (hopefully so i can get it filled up and running.) yes i am using sweeper vacuum hosing lol. Can cut it to length and works beautifully. Second pic is of how the water enters into the socks, then starts its journey through the refugium. Third pic is of the bulkhead design i threw together to keep excessive splashing to a minimum.

Had to drain. Got 50g into it and it was starting to tilt forward ever so slightly. Also the tank seems a bit shaky. Trying to decide if reinforcing it to the wall would be beneficial or if i should just continue on. Perhaps when its loaded down with all 150-160 gallons itll sit still a bit better
