The overflow is made from 6" ABS pipe that I split down the middle and drilled holes in the top. It will look alot better once I paint the back.
I'm going to use a black stand with my black 150 HQI pendant(with a new 20K bulb) and black sand. I think the corals colors will really pop against the black sand.
Hey Great DIY job Tony. My only improvement might have been drilling the BH higher in the tank and cut the overflow short. It might have saved some Reef-Estate. Every little bit helps. I know my 20 long is always cramped.
Still, very cool. Keep up the good work.
Elmo18. Hows that cap growing? I may have to put a frag of that in the new tank. see you in the chat room.
bradreef. Wait until I get water in the thing and it will be super cluttered. You know cheato, return pump, skimmer, heater......... :badgrin:
szidls. If I wouldn't have gotten in a hurry and thought it out a little more I probably would have went with a small corner skimmer and drilled the top corner. I saw a couple of really nice ones at Kevins shop, but it was to late.
I just used some cheap stuff I bought at the grocery store LOL. I hope this peels easy because if you look in the pic those finger prints aren't on the front glass there between the back glass and the paint and it's silicon. I wiped the back down with alcohol before I painted it, but I didn't see the silicon finger prints until it was to late. Knowing my luck that cheap paint will be the strongest stuff made Oh well time to get out the razor blade and start scraping. I left the area where the overflow is unpainted though so I could see what's on inside the thing so this should make it easier.
If you have alot of micro bubbles, you might look closely at your Loc-Line. I have micro bubbles on a semi regular bassis and its because my Loc-Line returns are mostly above water. They are not comepletely air tight.
