Josh: My tank has 4 holes in the overflow. I am using only 1 for return, which left 3 for overflow. I have a blue wave ballast

The GRI had a problem...it was way to loud, I am sending it back to marinedepot, and they are overnighting a new, and smaller, pump to me. Im going w/ a 1200GPH pump instead(The sump was filling up to much). I had the valves shut to off when I wasnt using the GRI return, I opened them up when I turned the pump on.

My sump was designed to handle any and all overflow water from main display incase of power failure...so I dont think I need water alerts, but I think I wil be getting 2 just to have in the stand. Why not right?

I know the tank is empty...but this is my first Night Tiime Shot
Water is still cloudy from sand, but you get the idea.
I mounted 1 blue LED strip(6 LED's) on each end of the tank(12 LED's in total). As you can see, ther is a distinct Blue line coming from each strip, but the tank as a whole gets fairly blue. It looks blue'er in person.
As a few people have asked about the LED's, Here is a link: http://www.marinedepot.com/ps_ViewIt...ILTFILDSB.html
