Brooklyn ZUSKA's 65 gallon thread

I had a 65 gallon tank and all you know i had really bad ick. so i took everything apart and got better equipment such as a ASM G2 skimmer with mod on it instead of the seaclone 100. Better lights i think there the 36 inch sunpod with 150w in each bulbs well 300w is enough for me, 9 led moon lights and 9 led white lights.

This set up is a disaster waiting to happen.

Zuska, is your drain pipe affixed to the sump? Is seems ready to spray saltwater onto the power strip to the right.

Honestly, you need to stop and look at your setup. It really is a disaster waiting to happen. It might be the possible fire, water damage, tank over flow, or one of the many other things I'm sure could go wrong. But if I were you I would listen to the above two. Cause that drain pipes just dying to get to that powerstrip .

Attach your power strip to the side of the stand above the ground so if water spills over it won't get to it.

You could plumb you drain with PVC or you could find another way to attach it to something in your sump that won't move.

Don't know about the overflow box, maybe someone else will chime in. Get HOF to drill it?

You should seriously consider drilling the tank before it's too late. this is a ticking timebomb to flood.
