Got a little work done today. I got the base to my floating canopy on. Now pushed the tank into its spot. Also started putting all the reactors back in.

Very nice. Love the floating canopy idea. Will you put it on rails so that it moves forward and back when you need to service the tank?

here is a sketchup of what my canopy will do




this should allow me to raise and lower the canopy via two attach support wires.

No electric pulleys powered by your Apex? J/K, really cool design.

Don't be, you made very wise decisions! Just another reason for you to go back. It's good you made that pregnant wife first!

Now go back to work and finish that tank

Question about putting your probes in the sump. i am also setting up an emerald sump (mine is the 34). have you already tried putting your probes in the built-in probe holder? they don't seem to fit very well. i have only tried the temp probe so far but it doesn't seem to fit in any of the holes. thoughts? your build looks great, by the way!

Thanks i only use orp, ph, and conductivity probes in the holder. I don't. Put the temp probe in there. I also have a emerald 34 on my 70 oceanic tech tank and never really put the temp probe in there. I have the temp probe in the overflow in that one as well.

I love my Trigger Systems sump, but I found the probe holder(s) to be inadequate. Instead I used the Neptune magnetic holder and it holds all my probes perfectly, nice and solid.
