Yes- awesome info. I'm doing my plumbing this weekend. First time, I feel pretty handy myself, but I bet this will be a challenge. Luckily my sump matches pretty closely to my tank holes. I unfortunately had to buy new bulkheads but I pray they fit (BRS says they will)
Buy clear primer it is out there u just have to look. I too have the purple primer floor and nothing matches it.
As am I, so very timely ... and listening very closely!
Agreed! I should have done this.
Another mess up, felt over confident when glueing the pipe into the bulk head, well pipe didn't go all the way in. Had to trip the fitting, as you can see gone the pic one connection is thicker than the other. Don't rush things!
"Trip the fitting"?
That's a new and unfamiliar term . . .
~Bruce, who's worried (having never really plumbed before) about whether I'll have to replace all the parts for a given section if a fitting comes up with a leak . . .
Trim the fitting .
Haha you'll be fine
Already missing the lit up sump area. Going to have to get some strip lights or something.
Looking good today. Just moved power heads and put them at about 4 bubbles.
One last video of the current tank. Be sure to hit HD
Looks great for the new build and your tank now is looking good as well. Nice job. Following along.
Thanks!!! My 250 is growing coral likes it's its job ATM. 180 is leaking, ordered a new tank it'll be here next week. Not looking forward to moving everything .
That's awesome everything is growing for ya. Sucks to hear the 180 is leaking. I'm sure/hope everything survives the transfer.
I think the saying goes... one step forward, three steps backwards.
Brand new tank arriving tomorrow.
Really sucks that I blew so much of money on the used setup.
I'm so sorry about the leak! I think all the 180s are cursed ...mine has some defects and has to be replaced. Luckily the current tank hasn't started leaking, but definitely has some issues.
, just got the old tank off, new one sitting in the garage. Stand is screwed.... now looking at other options for that...
Good luck, I hope you come across a good deal!
