Pic before return pump was turned on. So water level is not that low. Only two fish and the cycle begins. Need to swap sumps.

Simple open and functional sump. Easy to clean.

FYI…DO NOT order anything from Advanced Acrylics! Don’t say I didn’t warn you. The only reason why he started working on it is because I told him I wanted to cancel the order.

Emails from John at Advanced Acrylics:

You should’ve read the reviews before you ordered from the advance acrylic guy. He’s a moron - can’t believe he’s in business still. I was lucky to get my money back most people did not even get their money back. This goes back 15 years -I still can’t believe he’s still in business.

the scape looks sick - you got me beat this time 😂👍😂 looks awesome

Ain’t that the truth! After I read the reviews I knew I was in trouble. Dude is a total train wreck. Did you literally see how many times he said…”I’m gonna ship tomorrow.” Total lie’s.

Funny enough I ordered a frag tank from him several years ago. Didn’t have a problem that I remember.

Thx, for the kind words on the scape. Me and the wifey knocked it out over several days. Little buy little.

I didn’t take any chances getting it into the tank either. You break a panel or scratch it during Covid and you might wait a year to get a replacement. Unless you go through ADG. 😉

Crazy thing was I actually hit the wood twice pretty darn hard. So glad I protected the glass!

he is trouble when you order a large tank and put 50-75% of the money down. He’s a scam.

Not enough money for him to scam on smaller tanks. Once you threaten lawsuit then he either builds the tank or refund the money.

Exactly. I’ve met a lot of Liar’s, but he is by far at the top of that list. He’s constantly dishonest about everything he says. When I told him I wanted a refund he built the sump the next day pretty much.

Still not believing this.... :rofl:
Just imagine what Cody is thinking right now…he’s probably sitting over there drunk in disbelief. Lol


Honestly it wasn’t me, it was Covid, then the fact that I got burnt out because I was getting slammed in the hospital. Then I moved because the lockdowns were killing us in the apartment. Got totaled in my truck. Then the crazy landlord deal and at the same time I hurt my back really bad. Foot is still numb, but hey I’m back to work and hobbling around getting paid. Tank is up and I’m feeling pretty good right now. It’s been a heck of a year!

I have everything but a controller and pH probes which I honestly won’t need for a while or ever. They’re certainly nice to have.

Need to run a magnet through my reactor media and sand, rinse the sand, setup the reactor in its spot, get the GHL online, switch the sump next week hopefully, send off an ICP in 2 weeks, setup Kalk or CO2 scrubber, etc…etc.

I like those Fujicube kits, was about to make one but found a decent deal on a trigger 36” sump
