    Hello all

    Sump area is still being cleaned up. I have a shelf to install and mount a few items, I sprayed the inside of stand with water proof truck bed liner. Works great for small spills.

    Trigger sump is very nice. I dont use the socks as I found it too loud. I used the long tube from fuge inlet and it works well.

    The Q2 skimmer is insane. Silent and the sludge it removed will buckle your knees.

    Nova led is great light. Grows macro like mad. I moved it higher in then this photo.

    Jebao pump is silent and moves a crazy amount of water (2377GPH). I run it at 4/10 as the single drain cannot take more then 6/10. I suppose i could convert it to a dual drain but i dont see the need. I will add a gyre 200 for more random flow.
