    Smaller footprint. Could you mount the pump on top or I have seen ones with them mounted inside so there is no chance of leaking....

    agreed, it needs to be tighter, especially for under tank setups.

    But it's lookin' good! What did you make the top & bottom of? Or are they prefab PVC?

    This is my calcium reactor (OLD design).. tighter fittings, etc. Reeferboys is even more compact! It's a Koralin.. His under tank stand is busy!

    Heheh.. no no, this is like a 8+ year old sucker.. I traded an old Top Fathom skimmer that sucked for this puppy.

    It's still going, but not big enough for my tank now though, need way more.

    Glad you like the plywood plate and stool stand!
