That's going to be incredible... from the stand to the scape. Just perfect. I know how things just fall by the side for a bit.

You should have made the stand out of stainless steel, get a stainless steel regulator, and a stainless steel input and output lily pipe. I'd wet my pants if you did that. Love the SP Twinstar.

Stainless tubing would have cost an eye. I have a dual stage concoa with two Parker’s all ss but that’s powering two other tanks!

That dual metering valve setup is making my eyes sore. You should get a street tee SS-2-ST.

I like that better than mine. I'll look around for it. I purchased mine prebuilt. Is there a precise way to make sure they are screwed in enough? Like using a tq wrench??

. Just wrap it with 4 layers of pipe tape and hand tighten it reasonably with a wrench. Just don't over do it. No need for a breaker bar. Then once everything is completed and installed, add soap and water for a leak test to see if it blows bubbles.

Now you just have to find a soft close hinge that will work with that door. Perhaps:

Week 3 update: Dealing with minimal diatom algae. Only .25ppm of Ammonia left to cycle. Water level lowered and outflow is now a spin pipe so that the flow of the 2215 does not blow away the coming fauna.
