Thanks! I did a little more the past 2 days. waiting on the pictures to make it from my phone to my computer so I can upload them. Routed the mini stand top, painted everything that needed painting, brought it all inside, and drilled the holes through the tank for plumbing.

Changed out the led lights on my cheato reactor because it started just growing slime algae. Using the red blue grow lights now. The other leds I had which used to be a white had burned the waterproof coating and became a nasty orange color. I peeled some of the coating off and you can really see the difference in color. Also posted a pic of the burn on the water proof coating.

Well I came to post some updated pics on my new system as I finally was able to get water flowing, then i realized I never uploading a batch of pictures I thought I did where I had everything painted and assembled in position. I'll look for them to upload otherwise I'll take some new ones as it stands right now. Just added the salt and bacteria today now that I got the water actually flowing rather than just sitting there cold due to plumbing issues.

You can see the new drain vs the size of the old drain which I had to leave in place being that I now have a giant hole there. I ended up plugging the inside of the bulkhead and gluing the plug in place with pvc glue even though it was threaded. I later realized I probably should have just left it in place to use as a back up drain but o well.
