The specs are 72"x31"x25" it has a single pretty good size overflow in the center but it only has 2 1" pipes sticking up cut at an angle. I'm currently running a 150 with 2 1.5" durso...

    Here is how I made a Durso pipe for my tank drain of pieces of 1" PVC pipe. I used a T connector, repair connector, a piece of pipe where I cut bunch of holes with a miter saw, a cap where I drilled 6 holes and another cap. I am not going to glue this thing, because after all where can it leak to ?

    I'm sorry, this question has probably been asked over and over but I haven't found what I need searching through past posts. The more I read, the more confused I get. So many choices and it seems like there isn't a general consensus on what works best. Before going out and spending money on...

    Some pictures - this tank took 30 minutes to setup once in place (doesn't include time to fill). Please post any questions - I would love to talk about this tank. We also built the hole pictured.

    Other than the obvious difference of all water on the floor or just a portion of water on the floor, are there any advantages/disadvantages of having the drain lines drilled in the back vs. the bottom?

    ALL RIGHT As some of you might have noticed I am asking a lot of housekeeping diy questions lately... The hubby and I are trying to figure out the next steps of the tank apparently the stocking part was easy compared to the endless DIY projects out there. I think I have a handle on what we...

    My husband made a durso stand pipe following the directions here http://www.dursostandpipes.com/ The tank is still loud though :( so a couple of questions 1. the hole in the cap is about 3/8" should this be larger/smaller to reduce the noise? 2. the directions stated it's better...

    I was thinking of ways to quiet/muffle the sounds coming from inside my stand. Some kind of foam or padding. I was wondering if anyone has done this. I was hoping there is something I can pick up locally, like at a home depot. Any ideas?

    the 180 i bought was supposed to have the stand pipe installed but wasn't. how far below the tank water level should the drain opening be? should it have an elbow on top? a "u"? should it have a "tee" on top so it can have an elbow or "u" and still have an open top for air? pics of your...

    So after flooding the room yesterday and 14 hours of work, I've finally joined the sump club! Let me know what you guys think. We worked hard on it and had to put it next to the tank because no cabinetry underneath the tank stand. Euroreef skimmer and dolphin pump were given to me from a...
