    Thanks for starting my tank thread @459b, Ja luckily there were no hiccups during the move even driving on nasty roads. I'll have to give the tank, sand, sump & LR a good cleaning tonight. Then I can start hooking everything up, hope I can remember where everything goes:whistling:. Will try to post pics soon:biggrin:
    @459b thanks for the help last night buddy & for keeping the LS until the tank is wet, hopefully before the weekend.

    Pretty excited & can't wait to start filling up the tank.

    No problem. No pressure, but there going to be more than a few people keeping a very close eye on this tank.
    Livestock is safe, corals are in my tank and look like they should recover. Fish and urchin are in a bucket with heater, circulation etc.

    We were careful moving the tank & used plenty foam material to keep the tanks & sump secure.

    Nice little setup. What's the big bomb-looking thing on the return?

    Ahah, I see what you mean! I thought there was a pipe missing or it runs up the back. Nice idea.
