Goodisor here is a very simple straight forward set up that works very well. You can add equipment etc very easily but every thing you need is there

Rob's sump is about the same level as his display...his tank is in wall. I think he should post some pic's to give us an idea. I saw his tank about a year ago and think he has made a very good start...Rob how does your display overfloe to the sump, I remember a small weir type overflow?

PS - kanga I really like your sketchup work - wish I could get it right ;)
Thanks Sims actually very simple, I am busy with a "How to:" page for basic designs but its taking bit of time to finish.

Must say thanks to BruceMg with the help on the pipe bends:thumbup:

Goodisor, have a look in the help forum. you might have to resize them there is also 2 ways of uploading your pics, let us know if you dont come right
I tried downloading photos as described.My files sizes are on 101kb each and the limit is 200kb but keeps saying bad save.But I think the files that were sent in doc format pretty much explain my setup

Hi Goodisor - I LOVE the in-wall tank idea! You have a decent start there man! This tank have a LOT going for it..... It's got the making of a REALLY AWESOME tank!

Where are you? In CT? Otherwise - is Liaquat sending you the live rock via courier?
