65 Gallon with sump


Hi yall! Ive been lurking for awhile here but finally took the plunge to sign up and show off my little tank.

It's low on plants right now, I just got it going again after my sunsun 304b died. All my inhabitants barely lived in a spare 40 g i had, with an air pump going full bore.

built and plumb'd this sump over the weekend, its my first

Here is a video of the tank , its inhabitants and the sump.(nothing professional, the vid was intended for my brother)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-c49e7fh9w

next goals:
1. get some metal and skin the 2x4 stand
2. streaming go pro so i can check on things when im gone for long periods
2a. Micro-controller/processor aquarium controller for all electronics i am sick of timers!!

feel free to suggest or comment!

Setup:

Tank: 65 oceanic bottom drilled only

Lights: beam works, two work lights, two off road led lights.~ 230 watts

Sump: 20g tank glass dividers, odyssea 1000 "1200" gph return pump, fluval heater.

Hydor 240 gph power head In tank to diffuse co2

Overflow: 4" dvw pipe teeth cut on tablesaw.

forgive my bad grammar and rhetoric, Im an engineer I like numbers.

If you are running CO2, ferts, better add plants fast or the algae will start invading~
