careful silicone wont adhere to the acrylic....basically the silicone acts like a wedge and the weight of the water pushes the acrylic against the silicone making a seal so dont skimp on the silicone so the acrylic doesn't slip, it happened to me :/...also i heard if you sand the edges the silicone will grav the acrylic a little better too

the tank is looking great man cant wait to see it in person...the 2 mp40s might be a little overkill on that tank since its only 48", you could probably get away with 2 mp10s or if you want to stir it up a little more than that do 1 of each.....my mp10 does decently well in my 55 which is 48", kind of want to eventually put one on the other side as well

totally sweet sump.
Are you building a canopy or installing some kind of grate to fix the flying fish problem?

I just got a wrasse for the tank at work and the lights and other STUFF on top of the tank take up so much space that even though there is no canopy, the fish would have to be a physicist to jump out of the tank!

good luck!
