    Slykat's Inland Reef

    This is a new 180G aquarium set up. Previously I have had a 30g and a 90G over the last 15 years.

    Aquarium size is 72"X24"X24".

    Sump is 84G 54"X20"X18".

    Picked up the aquarium, sump and stand in Sept. 2015.

    Dec/Jan worked on aquarium set up and Fish room.
    Set up is in the basement rec room. I re-enforced the floor where legs sit and also changed chip board for plywood sheet. Under the stairs is the fish room with pass thru to tank for plumbing.

    Built the sump stand 18" high, plus sump should give me a good working height. There is room for storage underneath. Sump is 54"X20"X18" with 4 compartments. Drain/sock section, skimmer section, return section and refugium with blacked out glass.

    That is one nice sump you have their. It is a shame that we hide them away as I think a well designed sump can be a work of art. More pictures would be appreciated of the setup. Hopefully all is going well.

    The electrical is looking good. I thought I was the king of overkill, but you seem to be right up there with me.

    Here is an update of the water storage/mixing plumbing.
    Slykat's Inland Reef-img_20160107_111344266-2-.jpg
    Its a 40g Vertical tank with vented lid and bottom plumbed bulkhead.

    Ro/Di water is plumbed to upper part of tank, with a float valve for redundancy.
