On Tuesday, I ran through the setup of the sump, overflow, and return line plumbing. I also hung the light but have no run the cables through wall moulding yet.
Hopefully within the next few days I'll have the cords neat and tidy, and my plumbing the way I want it. As of right now I'm having extreme difficulty getting the overflow quite. On my 29 gallon I have tons of connectors and adapters, but that thing is super quite. This is a noisy son of a gun!! I used as few connections as possible to cut down turbulence and for ease of maintenance. Something isn't jiving though.
Plants should be moved over within the next day or two as well. Fish are soon to follow!!!

Bulb choices are:
3 geisemann midday
ATI Purple Plus
ATI AquaBlue
UVL Red

That is a interesting choice of bulbs the overall color it puts out is nice though!!

What kind of over flow are you using?

the output is beyond awesome... im getting a sun tan working on my tank
color is phenominal. everything looks VIVID

im using a CPR overflow, same setup as the 29 gallon, just a bigger version. the 29 has a cs 50 (300 gph rate)
this tank has a cs90 (600 gph) it actually gets quite around the 800 gph range but has lots of splashing

Have you modified the piping at all in the overflow? Full siphon and a gate/ball valve is the way to go!!!

When will plants be arriving?

NO SIR. i will not be running full siphon.. i like the drain agitation. helps with oxygenation, and of course degassing some co2 so i can keep fish safe.. it also prevents problems if something bad happens...

plants will be comming from the 29 gallon hat i've been letting grow in.. it'll be skimpy for a few weeks. but that's okay

thanks!! it was a lot of fun building and staining. the color is amazing in person. it fits very well with the decor of the house.

i started moving plants and straightening out wiring and plumbing.
i started co2 up as well. i tried running it trough a smaller pump first but the rio HF17 actually does a better job chopping things up on its own

here's a few plants i go moved last night. with co2 blasting.
picture is also shot with 2 bulbs only on. the other 4 were left off

Default Mostly planted!!!!

got 90% of my plants moved out of the 29 gallon into this thing, and 80% of the plants out of the 10 gallon into the 29.
This was cool, i pull 3 feet worth of crypto wendtii red out of the ten gallon. 1.5 feet of plant, and 1.5 feet of root... there were probably 3 crpts like that. the rest were still pretty big

I also took a shot of my 114 inch wide window from 40+ feet away at night so you can see what my neighbors see and what passerby's see when they drive by my house!!
