    The unit is on the back of the tank and 1 inch from the wall operational pictures is almost impossible.

    Looks great! couple of Q's

    What are you using to feed water in and from where (sump?)

    What are the actual demensions that you used?

    Is the last pic distorted from the angle it was taken from or is there really that much deflection on the front and back?

    Looks like a lot of thought went into it, and it shows, quite the job there!
    Every electronic device is manufactured with smoke stored deep inside... only a true genius can find a way to set it free.

    I had a canister filter that I was not using. I took everything out it and use the intake in the display then the return in the refuge.

    Dimension 30 long 4 wide and 12 deep

    There is that much deflection. I will need to install another brace and will post pics when completed.

    Thanks
