    Rock work colored up nicely. Leds were awesome, but tank has been taken down like evolved mentioned. I have a new build in process.





    Glad you guys are still interested lol. Unfortunately the 65 crashed due to a powerheads malfunction/meltdown.

    Hi Insainspain

    I know this is an old thread but hopefully someone can help me ...

    What size plumbing for the overflow and for the return did you use, also can the overflow and return be drilled on the same horizontal centreline?

    Appreciate you help

    I used 1.5 inch for the drains. The return can go anywhere, but remember that in a power outage the water will drain back thru the return, so you want the return high.

    Crazy. All this work and on to a new tank? Wow you're stronger than me.
    What happened? A power head did what?
