Finally today the rest of my equipment came in ! I have to thank Pop Coral for getting everything and hooking it up.



Today I built a box that will have all the controllers attached to the front and the wiring hidden behind. I was planning to drill a 2" hole in the middle that will feed all the wires inside the box but ran into an issue with the MP40. Apparently the wire is directly connected to the dry side, not sure how to hide the wire neatly. The cut out on the right side of the box will be for the 8 outlet control center.



I was able to install the lights and pump but only test the lights. Hopefully by this weekend I can get finally start cycling the tank.

It still sticks out in the over flow chamber. Can I submerge it fully and lay it on the bottom of he sump ?

Nice tank. I got the same one but didnt setup yet. How much evaporation would you say a day?
As of now the tank is still cycling with the lights off I have to refill the ato chamber every three days. This might not be a lot and how all rimless tanks are, it's just a big change coming from a 28g nano. I just purchased a 16g ato that will go into my closet. I will put up some pics later.

Dosing container came in today. Fits perfectly on top of the cabinet.


Finally the tank is done cycling and I was able to finish the sump area just in time. Hopefully this weekend I will be able to start moving some stuff over from the old tank.
