Hi starting a new project, a 3 level 3 tank on a reinforced black steel stand.

The main tank a 135G starfire tank will be toped by a split 80 G display starfire glass refugium feeding the Reef , that system being hooked to a 75 G regular glass sump which wil pump the return to the top tank refugium to start the cycle all over again. A closed loop will be moving the water in the main Reef tank cause i only want swimming space in there. So the overflows will be a herbie kind.

Thanks it took me almost 10 years to get those, they are so expensive, but i got them cheap because they were closing down, so $3/lb instaed of $17/lb, so i got 197lb of it i was lucky. Are you a member of Aylmer Salty's too?

And the monster 150 G in perfect condition , i'm goin to work on the overflow and its easier like that and monday she'll be put on right side up on her stand. All the guys were looking at her overflow and the wavebox , pretty neat design. They loved the glued press resin wood panel on the bottom idea.
