I've decided to use a herbie standpipe on one overflow and the return coming out of the other. Does anyone foresee a problem with running it this way?

FWIW, I run one drain full syphon (with a ball valve for adjustment) and the left drain is a stockman. Absolutely dead quiet. Ive taken db readings before and thw only noise i was picking up was from the pumps and fans on the lights

Are they both 1" drains? How much water is your return pushing?

Started to move into the new house today and found a pleasant surprise. A man cave that is 30 ft long and 12 ft wide.

I would like to know how that pump and velocity is working out for you. I want to do the same but am worried about noise.
Everything looks great!

Stands done for the most part. I just have to take the tank off and sand because part of the tank isn't touching the top of the stand.

The tanks shimmed now I'm saving up for rocks and sand. It coming up on Christmas time so I'm stuck buying one rock at a time. I'm up to 20 lbs of rock lol.

First rock structure is done. The next structure will be significantly smaller probably only 20 lbs of rock. It will be placed in the very left corner.

Changed my mind on the rockscape. I like this design much better.

That looks great I'm interested to know how you hung the doors and have you got a pic of the sump in the bottom?
