75 Gallon Tank - Bottom and Back Painted - Greyish Color (looks black)
30G 3 Chamber Sump built by @Herbie and Myself - Blacked out on 3 sides
Eheim 1262 Return Pump
K1 Media In Chamber 1 of sump
Sera Siporax in Chamber 1 of sump on a custom eggcrate rack
3 x Jebao WP25
Canister Reactor w/Carbon Media
ASM G1x Skimmer w/Gate Mod

Chamber 1 of the sump has the drain and a spray bar. This is to force the K1 media to tumble like mad.
Chamber 2 of the sump has the return pump which feeds the spray bar, chamber 3 and canister reactor. The heater is also in this chamber(this might change).
Chamber 3 of the sump has the skimmer.


And that is it for now. I am sure I will change the aquascape a few more times..

Tank has been running with regular water for 10 hours. Testing all the fittings, making other adjustments. I'll need to drain the tank. Should get my rock in the tank today and start filling with RO/DI water.

Between the Winter classic periods. Go Hawks!

Where are the pictures?! Is this like an imagination ride or something? I'm seeing a valley of scolies and sticks...
