i decided while ago i wanted to setup an aquarium for african cichlids ( peacocks) . I wanted to go with a sump for filtration. First time using a sump. I got 120g tank built with star fire glass that measures 4x2x2 . I decided to built my own stand , used a 40g breeder for the sump, Siliconed all the baffles in which i hope are somewhat right . Purchased ghost over , vectra m2 return pump & reef link.Did all the plumbing myself. The tank is currently setup in the garage make sure have no leaks. I have added few pictures. Done ton of research online before starting , Will be getting it up and running, tuned in over next few days and make the necessary adjustments.Thanks for looking !

Nice job with the cabinet and your choice of color too.

I see and can appreiciate you like the clean plumbing. BTW, I know overkill but they have pipe brackets you can use to support the PVC hard plumbing. I think it adds a cool touch and support much better than straps. if you're into the details as you are. :)
