Posting pics of another members build because he did such a fine job with it. The journal details on all aspects of his tank including the dry start are fantastic!

Time to start on the plumbing. With the great help from a fellow club member Jarrell, with access to some really neat equipment for cutting stuff, we put together the wet\dry sump this weekend.

The tank is a 40 breeder. There are 2 one inch inlets (the bulkheads) that stick down into a noise reduction chamber on the sides, the water then flows up and over the filter sock plate, down through the socks and then out through an opening that is level with the diffuser plate for the bio chamber. It then flows through the bio balls, out the bottom and through a bubble reduction area before hitting the sump. The sump has a built-in float control that will be attached to a RO system to refill for evaporation. The sump also contains the Mag 18 fractioning pump and heater(s) not sure how many heaters I will need at this point but there is plenty of room to add more.

My thanks again go out to Jarrell for all his help with this build.

Waiting on another bulkhead (in the mail) to finish it up. The really nice part of this filter is that top lid covers the entire sock and bio chambers to create a very tight seal to keep the CO2 in place.
