The last few weeks have been slow-going in aquarium land. I did manage to get ahold of an angle iron stand, which I’d like to paint and then cover eventually to avoid too much exposure to salt water. I also managed to acquire some 2 x 6 boards to lay across the bottom so I can set up the sump.
Last night I went to the hardware store and managed to get at least some of the plumbing materials I need. Here’s a picture of that haul:
The flexible tubing is for the intake line. Theres also an adapter and a hose clamp to secure it to the PVC pipe that’s attached to the overflow. The two elbows and the thinner pipe are going to be part of my return, but I still need the soft plumbed part for that and the check valve for the pump. (I didn’t buy that yet because I’m still not quite sure what I’m doing for the return),
