Thank You Mike And Wrightme43 For The Posts. The Pictures Are Great It Is Better Than Some Body Trying To Explain It To Me. Pictures Are Worth A Thousand Words. I Was Rather Disapointed By The Response Here On Rf.i Posted The Same On Another Site And Got Bombarded With Response. It Is Looking Like I Will Have To Modify My Cpr 2000 Before I Plumb It Into Service
Thanx Again To All Who Responded.

Gobie - here is mine. Not much really to it. I do run a filter sock on occasion, have extra live rock in the sump, and a gravity fed refugium in a side cabinet (refugium does not contain any macroalgaes in it). A big skimmer, and live rock. I hope to add UV filtration soon.

cool set up I really like that one too. one question why does everyone hard plumb all the piping? I use hose and fittings thatway i can take it apart and clean out the lines.
I don't use teflon tape either i use DAP silicone to seal threads.

The reason that most people use hard plumbing is that it is easy and reliable. I wouldn't recommend using clear vinyl tubing to anyone, only use the braided type. The clear stuff can split and really ruin your day.
