It's 3/4 birch plywood. I used 2x4 to stand it of the back wall and hinged one side with a stainless piano hinge. Everything was painted white and I used a cheap black floor runner from my local hardware store to face it. (I used this floor runner on the sump table and mixing station platform also) After that was dry I drilled it and used desk cable bulkheads.

Another set back. I ran a leak test on the manifold and sumps tonight. Every thing passed except the reeflo. I have a reeflo yellow tail gold that I just replaced the rear seal in. It had a slow drip and after replacing the seal the same drip is happening.
I sent reeflo an email asking how they wanted to handle the warranty at this point. Hopefully they say send it back and we will fix what ever is wrong and if we can't we will send out another.

I hope to hear from him soon... I'm so close to done!

Update: reeflo has a replacement pump on its way. I'm still running the other pump till it shows up and the tank is cycling. So far so good.
One issue I'm having is my gyre will randomly flash red on the controller and shut down... frustrating. I might have to buy another.

Here's a few pictures. I'm happy with the rock layout. Can't wait to start stocking it.

Sweet fish room. Plenty of space and bells and whistles to tinker with stuff.

An update on the build. For all intents and purposes it is ready for a few critters. The only thing left is to dress up some of the wiring and get and install the ATO.
