    I've had this new tank for a couple weeks and just got a chance to set it up this weekend. It is filtered a 15g sump filter with a pump rated for 650gph at 6', it is pushing about 3 or 4 feet. lighting is 2x54w 6500k.

    I just threw some decorations in there for now as, for once, I don't have a scape planned so excuse the "pedestrian" look . This will be changing but currently stock is 3 angels, 10 congo's, 8 sterbais a bn pleco and a bunch of mysteries and mts. Plants are pennywort, dwarf and amazon swords, and more pennywort.




    Really bad picture but wanted to show the Congos colors developing:



    I went with tee's on the outlet of the bulkheads for ease of cleaning, I am going to add a valve to the inlet tee to regulate air and help quiet it down some.



    The sump, its doing a great job and I love it, very proud of myself I added a check valve to the outlet line because the outlets in the tank are lower than the inlet and my sump can't handle the extra volume if there were a failure.

        Thanks Guys Would you believe all that pennywort came from 2 or 3 5" stems Adam gave me a month or so ago? It really liked my tank!

            It works well, mainly its just to keep water coming in from splashing back out, I had a little tab siliconed inside of it to distribute the water better but there was too much coming through and it had to come out. I glued little tabs onto the frame so you can undo the union and then it slips out so you can clean.

            No, I can help you do it though.

                    Great start Matt! Everything looks very healthy. Great job on the sump. Have a feeling many are going to ask for your help and guidance to build their own.

                      Thanks Dena, as you know I'll have some variety soon in the plant department and also am getting a few things from Adam in the near future.

                      Thats what I'm here for I love helping with that kind of stuff, it doesn't hurt to have my creations fawned over either though.

                              Nice job overall! This came out looking really good. See, I told you that you would like the sump setup . Looks like you made good use of the pennywort to hide other things.
