its been a hard day ive not managed to get out done due to having trouble getting all the right plumbing parts ive got 1 an half inch tank out let connectors and 1 an half inch pipes but im struddling to find parts to down size the pipes to fit my skimmers inlet and also my phosphates inlet. shorly i dont have to use flexy pipe to join them an make it look like a bodge job. ive been to a number of diffrent hardware stores WICKS. B&Q and also a few others and all with no look. im also having trouble finding somet to fit straight to my aqua medic 6500 return pump ive got 3/4 inch piping but the same problem with connecting it to the pump. does any one no of a part that fits the OR6500 an then to 3/4 in pvc pipe? and from 1 an half inch piping to the 2060 deltec skimmer inlet? and the 1 an half to the fr616 deltec phosphate reactor.

i should think smells would be a problem as i plan to skim wet pluss i also plan to have it set to do a small water change daily. i am planning to fit none return valves on the ro waste pipe and on the pipe feeding salt water to the sump because the salt barrals water level is higher than the sumps water ill fit i T pipe then a none return valve im hoping that wen the pump stops filling the sump because the hose has to go up and over the barrel i was worried about it gravity feeding bk to my sump so a T pipe with a none return valve fitted to it should let air into the pipe and stop it gravity feeding sump. as a bk up to the ro shut of valve fitted to the salt barrel ive plumbed an over flow pipe in wich is also plumbed to the waste pipe with a none return valve as well. im hoping all this will work i should think it will like. time will tell[attachment=1291:107.

well its been about 10 weeks since i set my tank up now. its been abit up and down i must say i was to quick to had fish wich set me back quiet a bit lost quiet a few fish as well due to buying 3 regal tangs wich gave white spot to all my other fish.
ive also had problems with nitrates and phosphates but im almost there now but to say ive had very high phosphates my old acros from my old tank have still be colouring up ill post a pic of the tank 4 weeks in then one at 10 weeks in. but then i need some one to tell me how to use photo bucket coz im unable to post any more pics. looks like i cant even add these pics its saying there to large or somet thats a shame ive just started to get a nice collection of acros as well.
