Tank was up and running as a freshwater moved fish to a bigger 500 gallon and will now combine my two smaller reef tanks in to one. I have made my 125 gallon tank into the new sump.

Sump will have a refugium section (far right) return pumps in the middle than the skimmer section and then a wet dry/ bio filter section

Is that vectra going to be supported by anything? The one hanging behind the tank? I'd be worried about vibrations and any stress on the bulkheads there

the only possible problem I see is if/when the Vectra has to be replaced there isn’t a valve on the inlet side. You’ll have to bring the water level down below the bulkhead .... other than that it’s looking good.

I wanted to put a ball valve but I didn’t have the room behind the tank so the bulkhead I used has threads so I can in screws the strainer and screw in a cap

Drilled a 12mm hole in the glass and installed an adjustable float that will be connected to the RODI to control the sump water level

Put some white acrylic on the back and sides of the sump to hide any wires that run behind it

Very nice setup so far.....neatness does count....and yours looks great. I'm a little confused...in the first post you said you moved the fish to a 500 gallon tank.....so that's another tank you have in addition to this new 235 gal tank?
