    Received some more stuff for the build. Got the last two AI Hydra 26's and a pair of the Neptune WAV's, planned on getting 4 (want something on the back wall for random flow) thought that 4 WAV's through the APEX could come up with some great flows to minimize dead spots. I have a Maxspect Gyre 150 on the 120 now, was thinking of picking up another with an upgraded dual controller to have a pair on the back wall. A pair of WAV's would cost a little more but with the Gyre's I would be able to add an Ice Cap or equivalent battery backup in the future.

    Also picked up Neptune probe holder and the Neptune ATK, and for the return pump I decided to go with a Magnus 12000 VSB by Sunpole.
    I definitely wanted an internal pump. It can push a ton of water and the sump will be directly below the tank in the basement no bends head height will be 11.5 ft.

    Should be getting new pics of the tank soon it is also still evolving

    Still have to design the sump and finish scraping wall paper and paint the living room
