Have had zero time for anything but work this past few day's, today is day 13 in a row of work and I am scheduled to work again tomorrow . Hopefully on Monday I can get into a glass shop for my over flow and sump baffles.

Got a day off yesterday, yah ! Went to Rona spent a $12 on some 2x3's and I had some 1x4 pine laying around and quickly put together a stand . flow testing the setup tonight .

I still need to get a 10g tank to use as a sump the 5g is too small I also want to pick up a float switch to turn off the return pump and i need to get to the glass shop and have my over flow cut for the tank !

Default Made some changes to the sump .

I decide the auto top off wasn't needed and unsightly I'll make a better one later I turned it into a wet dry with reverse photo period macro algae refugium.

The water flows into the blue tub and fills up there are holes drilled into the tub on the right side in the space between the sump and the blue tub are a bunch of plastic wet dry media the water flows down these and around to the return pump.
