    It's coming. Lol building the doors next. I picked up the 1x3's for the doors thursday, I also finished the sump and got it back into service with a 65% water change. Should help keep the parameters where I want them.

    My plans on a 5g ro tank didnt work so I will have to figure something out for that and have to clean the wire up, it looks like crap right now.

    Yes it does, I've used it before and will use it here too. I just need to spend a little time routing the wires first.

    I haven't gotten to work on it for a little while, been doing some family things. I did get a manifold built yesterday, when I do my water change today I will install it. I dont like to use the return pump to run the manifold too but with limited space under a 55g that is just what I did. If I run into a flow rate problem then I'll look into a bigger pump. I'll add some pics shortly.

    It was later then I planed when I did the water change and added the manifold. So far it's working great, no leaks and I can add my media reactor to it shortly.
