    I think most of you guys/girls know I will be setting up a AGA 210 gallon here soon....I HOPE!:mrgreen:I ordered the Lifereef system about a month earlier and it has arrived,earlier than I thought.I'm hoping that this system will be up and running within the next couple of months.Tomorrow I'm going to try and plump all the pieces together but for now,take a look........:^:


    The lifereef manual(25pgs.) which is very imformative and helpful.Hopefully I can get it together without no leaks.I didn't take pictures of it but this setup from them came with every piece of plumping you would need down to the teflon tape...very cool!

    [​IMG]

    Separate refugium that I will plump into the main sump

    This picture doesn't do this skimmer justice,Its a biggie and a fatty...ran off a mag 9.5
    [​IMG]

    Here's the LF1-300S sump
    [​IMG]

    Sump and fuge together aprox. 64'' long

    Here is probably my final update on my 75 gallon.She will be coming down soon and either be converted into a frag tank....I just don't know yet.Notice the colts are already outgrowing this tank.Thats ok,there going back to the LFS.

    Thanks everyone

    Thanks everyone,I ran out of teflon tape half way through connecting eveything today.I spin the tape around the threads like 6 or 8 times...is this to much?Tomorrow a couple buddies of mine is going to help paint the back and move it from the storage room to its permanent home.My plan is to have all the plumping from the sump/fuge to the tank and just wait til next month,maybe by then I'll have some money for lights,plus alot of other stuff I still need.:boldblue:

    I could use some donations from NAAO members(I'll make peace with AFT members if they donate too!):shocking:

    Rigo,I'll PM you my address...lol.

    Today,I managed to paint the background finally after it stop raining.We been going through a drought and of all days,it rains today!:frustrat:.We finish plumping everything except the vinyl hoses that goes to tank(just in case I need to move the sump and fuge out to do something else).Next,I have no fricking idea.All I know is my arthritis is killing me(jk...I'm way to young for that).I'll probably get the fuge light,3 heaters,auto-top off,then think about how I'm going to wire all this stuff up.Should I have someone professionally wire this stuff up.I want a control panel but don't know jack about electrical work.

    Be back soon with updates....thanks guys/gals.I couldn't post this picture to the gallery so I had to use photobucket again.Anybody else having this problem?

    Bobby the dimensions on the tank is 72L x 24W x 29H

    Thanks Joe,BTW what is you setup going to look like.I know your going with the 150 sump.Are you having a separate refugium also and are you going in-sump skimmer or external.Good luck on your project.
