Well, I'll start by making this brief...

My old tank was a 50g with an internal overflow and a 10g sump.... it worked great, but as you can imagine 50g with the internal overflow isnt that big.

A friend gave me one of his tanks, an 80g with an external overflow and about a 20g sump. I've recently moved and after running a few tanks to keep everything alive (Post 16 - http://www.canreef.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=108189&page=2), my new 80g is alive.

It is not complete but the tank is running and the hardware is moved and setup with my Apex. Not very pretty with cables all over but today I should get a few more things looked after.

The 80g has way more space, tank is cycled and it just needs to mature a bit...

PS - Yes the ATO is the bucket on the side (for now) and it almost overflowed as the waterline was submerged when I first set it up - OOOPS.... I noticed it right after I took these pics....
