If it wasn't for bad luck I wouldn't have any luck.

About two weeks ago I came home from work to see the water level was a little low, I take a knee to look at the sump but my knee is soaking wet. Gate valve was leaking.
So I drained the tank and pulled the piping down and re set everything. I decided since I was bringing the piping down I would go ahead and build a PVC overflow so I wouldn't have to worry about burning my pump up in the event of a power failure.

I got it all in only to find out that the overflow was no where near enough gph.
Screw it, I'm tired of draining and refilling the tank. I broke down and ordered a CPR CS-102 1200gph HOB overflow. I love this thing. It's awesome, quiet, and flows great.

I also added some plants. These pics are from this past weekend. I have moved some swords and added some anacharis. I will take new pics this weekend.

I ordered a piece of manazita this week to add in.

I'm hoping to start adding some fish in this weekend.
