Hey guys, so I shutdown my main display tank 95 gallon bowfront approx. 2 years ago now because of a move, anemone killing all my fish and a baby on the way, well now I got a sweet deal on a new tank, and now I have to set it up. It will most likely take me a month to actually set it up since I work a lot and have barely any time to build this thing, but it will happen sooner or later,

The tank 60" x 20" x 20" starphire glass 3 sides, rimless,
Oceans Motions 4 way Closed Loop System
Planning a sump with a refugem, maybe? still thinking of ideas,

Trying to figure out loc-line position, the T's have to be locked in place before sand goes down, then I will only be able to move the loc-line, any advice on placement? I don't want to use any powerheads

Well, after the bulkhead snapping and the tank leaking all over the floor, I didn't like the plumbing anymore and I was mad at the sump, so I ordered new bulkheads and a new sump trigger systems crystal 36E, and here is the sump and the new plumbing that im very happy with
