I have Officially Lost my Mind, 240 Build

Recommended Posts


Figured it was time for some updates.

Progress has been slow but it has started moving now and a plan has come together.  

Plumbing was causing me some headaches since the fish room is beside the tank, not behind it which is ideal.  I also wanted the sump up off the floor in the fish room so that added to the plumbing fight.  I think I have it all straight now.  

Here is the plan for the sump stand

this will hold a 40 breeder refugium and a custom 125 (dimension not standard) sump, like this

the three red pipes are the drains from the display tank,  obviously they will be routed down into the refugium.

I am currently waiting on a drill bit to get the sump and refugium drilled for them to be connected together.

I added a few more filler "legs" under the stand after this picture was taken, as well as cleaned up the tank.


I also came up with a plan for the Apex to be mounted above the sump on the wall with a layout of all of the modules.  I worked on that some this weekend.

One thing you might notice, 2 return modules.  I decided to go with 2 of the Varios 8 pumps instead of just one and splitting it.  Mainly for redundancy and head loss.
