Got 2 coats of paint on so far. I'm not really a fan of the all black background.

Added 3 coats of blue paint and now I'm going to do one of black. I'll let that dry and then put the rocks in.

Put the overflow in. I'll give it a test to see if it holds in a few days.

The line from the ATO fill feed up and into a stand pipe. That way a siphon won't form. I blocked off the frame part of the pipe with pond foam inside the 90. I'll pick up a cap and see if I can drill it.

Nice build. Good way to hide the pesky o vee flow box. Are you adding more dry rock?

Yes. I have to order it. I want to have 3 pillars different heights. Where the top is bigger then the bottom. One of the pillars I want taller then the ledge. I'm going to use Reef Saver rock and Fiji rock for those. I also want to have a Tonga complex multi branch. The 3rd area I haven't quite figured out what I'm going to put in there yet.
