Ooh. This is most excellent. I’ve been planning a 120 build in my head for a couple months and this should be most helpful.

Is that the dual back overflows tank or the single corner?

And what is this stand? Haven’t heard of it.

A few things. I wouldn’t run the biopellets unless you have a crazy high bio load. Mine sits in a box these days. Skimmer and Refugio’s are more than sufficient for me, without overstripping the water. Your main pump is a little undersized. I know it says 1400 GPH, but after head loss and if you are trying to power a manifold for the reactors, you may be much lower. Shoot for at least 300-400 gph through the sump.

Also that MJ pump might be annoying. They aren’t quiet compared to your other pumps. Or is that only for mixing?
