    So I got tired of stocking and found an inerest in filtration. Until I get it right and im happy, I wont be getting any Prize Fish.

    First things first, JUST plumbed a Frag tank to my 300 in my stand:naughty:. DMNS 48"X16"X7" Tall;). Been trying to find time and today I had a day off from Life!:WHOA: Took advantage and got her fired up and picked up 2 Monsters:headbang2 (Pics later in the Thread).
    Only thing in it right now is 4" CL's and a 6" Rainbow Wolf Fish.

    New Sump- Just got my Order of K1 at my door the other day, so its still cycling but should be close to done. Tumbling pretty well. Had to toss in the ugly looking divider until I find time to cut up a piece of acrylic, till then this will work.

    Could not resist a Curupira so I got 2! Both are in the 300 and if need be one will occupy the Frag tank (lets cross our fingers that it works out:naughty:)
    8"er. Pretty shy right now and doesn't want to pose for MFK.

    Thanks Gangster, I like this one a lot

    JM- Thanks. Not sure on max size. I've read several different sizes from 30" to 20" so 2' I guess :)

    JK- wish I did bro. I just googled kaldnes and purchased from the best option w/shipping Lol

    Thanks amber

    I'm really digging these Wolfs! They are crazy active. Bott, mid and occasional top level. Each one is more active than my Raimbow-Log Fish (Erythrinus Erythrinus).

    Xingu was on the hunt right away w/the wolfs but has since left them alone :)

    Here goes 2 better pics of my sump. The middle chamber was built for a refugium and water would be still here. So I added a piece of acrylic that has made a great impact. The holes along the added piece of acrylic adds extra movement and o2 to the 4 air lines already in there.

    I'm fairly happy with the compact sump. Double filter socks for mechanical n I change them every 2 days.
