    Default Mike's Rimless 125

    I can finally start working on things. I got the sump last night and it fits like a glove. There is plenty of room for my Alpha 300 cone, some phosban sponges, and the return pump. I am going with the Eheim 1260 that I have to reduce noise through the overflow. I am not looking to make niagra falls just turn over the water 5x's an hour through the sump. Here are some pics of the tank and stand from today.

    I just checked to make sure the skimmer will fit and it fit with just a little to spare I am happy that the only other thing I will have in the sump is my return and the phosban sponges. I have the De-Nitrator and a media chamber that are external. If I do this right I will have adequate room under the stand. The return goes literally straight up to the bulkhead and the drain will feed into the skimmer chamber.

    Wow! Beautiful rimless. Where did you get it made and was it expensive?

    I'd treat the OSB with some polyurethane 2-3 coats. If it gets wet ( and it will where it's at) it will swell and warp.

    Tank was made by aquarium warehouse. The sump is 30-22-12. I am looking at different ways to hang the lighting right now.
