    The bean is really a great system to help with the starting of the system it is recommended that you drill the open channel hole .25" higher then the others so that the main siphon can kick in first.

    The open channel pipe should have water flowing through it at about 1/4 of the amount of the siphon it shouldn't be running dry.

    The emergency should never see water unless you are starting the system (because it will purge itself) or if there is a need for it to take over for the open and siphon.

    Your system looks great! Nice little set up you have there.

    Thanks for the comments all. Since Dec. 27, I've been working away from home at a power plant in Central Florida about 72 hours a week nonstop. It's demanding but rewarding, and I miss 3Reef a bunch.

    All for the best, my wife tells me! :)

    I look forward to being back onsite fulltime with my friends and online "family."

    The tank is doing pretty well considering the minimal attention it's getting.

    I'll snap a pic or two when the halides come on in the a.m.
