    Hi all ... So since seeing we do a lot of repairs,modifications etc etc... Decided to make this thread for fun..a thead where we can post before and after pics of certain jobs that we do.. Unfortunatley we are never always able to take pics of all the jobs,especially the "before" pics so a lot of jobs wouldn't be showed here..

    I will start with a sump brought in by @waynet (all posted with his permission)

    The sump 1225x450x350 ,front glass cracked top to bottom,and the dividers were more for a freshwater tank...we stripped it,cleaned it,replaced front glass,adjusted heights so pumps and skimmer could fit and re-arranged the dividers to accomodate a very easy 3 chamber filtration sump with a RO section and the middle section being the refugium...Thank you for your support @waynet :thumbup:

    Will post the pics shortly..
