    Thanks for the pic Cliff. I tried to get mine into the pump chamber but it was a bit tight so I put it into the equipment chamber.



    I also recycled one of my old tank lights from the original 55g set up to use as a cabinet light.



    I started breaking things down to silicone in the glass for the overflow today. I also started planning the return outlet. This is where it gets a little funky. Had I been the one who drilled the tank I would not have put the return where it is. Now that being said the PO was setting up for saltwater. I am wanting to break the surface with the return so I can drill a hole for a siphon break in the event of a power outage. I did not install check valve but that can easily be added. here is what I was thinking.

    Note: This is not a 1:1 representation but rather a visual of how it would fit together


    What do you think? I am trying to minimize the impact on the display tank. This puts the horizontal section of the return above the waterline (which is just above the bottom of the plastic trim so I can drill a hole in the bottom of the pipe). I am not sure what else to do short of leaving the outlet to dump out below the overflow some 5" below the waterline and adding a check valve.
