Alright well tank is officially plumbed and currently running some good ole water hose water! Plumbing was rough first water test i had multiple leaks where i just hand tightened a couple fittings and a bulk that wouldnt stop leaking. I ended up flipping it around its just an emergency drain and wont see anything but head pressure. Tomorrow ill be washing my substrate and scaping the tank. While i slowly make salt water.

i guess i should update this. Cycle is complete I've moved coral over and i have 2 fish (a sailfin and mels wrasse) in there. All 5 hydra 32's are on along with both MP 40's i added a cheap UV sterilizers that is honestly doing a fine job! i still need to wrap the stand but im in no rush with current lumber prices. plus im able to comfortably fine tune the sump. when i do finally wrap it ill know exactly where i need the easiest access. im leaning toward plywood with a hard wood overlay and magnets to hold it all together. heres a couple pics i know its a wreck lol. 20210418_172445.jpg 20210413_130807.jpg
