    Very nice looks great buddy looking forward to seeing this setup. Are you going to keep your tank 2 or just move all to this tank and put all focus on it ?

    That's a huge sump lol. don't forget you won't be filling the sump to the top more like 10-11inches. won't be alot of room in the cabinet for equipment lol.
    tank looks good it's pretty much what mine will look like when I swap tanks again but mine will be black lol.
