Good looking build!
I always had in mind a granite top stand and is very nice looking at one build...
How is your experience with the overflow so far...I read a lot of threads where people said they are very noisy...
Also what kind of lights did you pick to go with your new setup?
So far the overflow is definitly noticeable, I have the tank set up in my garage and it doesnt seem horrible but we will see when it get into the house. Right now I can here the water from my sump more than the overflow.
As far as lights I picked up an older Odyseey 4 bulb t5 and just recieved new bulbs they are the UVL vho-r with reflectors I went with two 454 (85% triband blue 15% nichia phos), One Actinic White (12k) and one 75.25 (14k). I wanted a bluer look and this seems to be pretty good we will see when i get my corals in.
Byrdman - Yes i have done the power outage test. It fills up to about 3/4" under the lip. I have holes drilled on my loc line and also a check valve. I have been thinking of drilling some holes in my last baffle to lower the fuge level a little but i also dont want to take to much water out of the pump section.
