    Wow that looks fantastic J! Great job. :)
    Love the overflow. How's the noise?
    How's the check valve?

    dersos are alittle noisy but that needs to be adjusted. I can't even hear the check valve, so it's really sweet (own you a beer for that one)
    going to grab a bigger (15H) tank for my sump and I should be good to go. Heater is in -> then Salt -> then sand. I plan on pulling most everything out of the 75 and reworking that tank and move enough rock from that tank to make the 40G. Maybe add alittle rock so not to strip the 75G

    That is cool J. Why the double drains again?

    Craig you don't like my Flip Flops :-[
    Ya right didn't notice them (wifes FF) until after I posted

    Naut, I used duel drains because It's cool. No just to increase flow. I didn't want 1.5" bulkheads so I went with 2x3/4 and it's cool 8)

    HAHA Dave your funny. In Vancouver (were I live) it's rare for it to get cold enough to snow in the winter.

    Hey J - looking at this again... your overflow doesn't have teeth does it... what's to prevent your fish from being pulled in? (If you look at the pics of my old 30, you'll see what I did to fix.. egg crate. NOt too pretty though.)

    The overflow Matt turned me on to has teeth that extend 1/2" above the water line. So far no fish have escaped from the display!

    I don't feel teeth are really necessary. I'm only going to have 2 clowns and a wrasse of some sort in there.
    Plus on my 75 I have to cut the Coraline out weekly and it really effect flow in between cleaning
