Lol..Yeah...No worries..I've got a thread up in Hardware section.

Btw...not sure if you saw my other post, but are you planning on using your previous tank as a sump?

If so, (and if not) take a look at my concept for using my current tank as a sump. Would appreciate any input/thoughts.

Let me know how you like that 4/3rds system. The biggest turn off is it's biggest advantage to me. They just seem so small after using my D300s for so long.

I use a Sony NEX-3 to take my photos. I've owned over 6 Nikon SLR's over the years. My last huge kit was a D300 with a 28-300 f3.5 VR ($1400 lens)...sold all of that, decided i wanted something more portable and almost as powerful. Honestly, I would now never go back to a full size DSLR unless I were to go back again shooting weddings and stuff. It doesn't look as serious as a true, full size DSLR.

Stick with the NEX, it will pay off. It can take photos just as good as most CMOS Nikons. Plus, the way most people who own huge cameras shoot out there, you could probably learn how to shoot better photos than theirs with this camera.

With your MP10 it won't matter flow wise. I had a brain fart and forgot 2 things, 1. It's aio and 2. It's not huge.

My return runs 650-700gph so when I posted that, that's what I was comparing it to. 200 should be good!

Read your manual and find out how to adjust white balance. If it doesn't have that/not good enough, get photoshop or another editor you can adjust levels and curves.

Pretty sure that is the same return I have on my tank. Flow through the rear chambers is good, but not ripping. Should be ok on your tank.

I liked GE1 silicone for dry but putty epoxy works great and cures underwater.

You need it to break the water surface though. I won't accept this tank unless it has an island. :lol:
