So Here are some pics of the latest. I have been taking my time on this build because I had some 120G issues that needed to be taken care of. but anyways, here is what has been going on.


First off, one of the AI SOL BLUES is coming down, and will be upgraded to the AI HYDRA



Got some conduit 1" from the local stores. I used a pipe bender right there and had a friend do the bends. It will be secured with 1" two hole strap.



The tool used to cute the 1" pipe orginally I was going to go with 3/4" pipe but they actually didnt have any. Also they only had a 1" pipe bender




Cut the center out, so that the AIs can slide back and forth, you could also drill holes, which would probably been easier. But I like how it came out.




Paint time

The POLE HOLDER














I will be looking to cover the end with a cap. Just gotta look for one. I think it came out really nice, and for under $20 bucks you cant beat DIY!

So I got this return pump, I figured Id give it a try. It says saltwater safe so I figured why not. Let me know what you guys think. If all else fails Ill get another bigger EHIEM for my 120g, and and put the current EHIM on the Nano.

Those look to me to be JBJ modular overflows.

The man who can keep a secret may be wise, but he is not half as wise as the man with no secrets to keep.
