    Went to see how the baffles fit and hey are very snug. Do I tap them to make them straight and then use aquarium silicone to keep in place and seal? I am worried about cracking the tank.

    Would you be able to use sand paper to shave them down a hair? It also helps the silicone stick better to the acrylic

    I always read that you want to have like 1/16 of an inch gap so you can adhere silicone, I would just cut as close as possible and silicone. Which one works better idk.

    Well that sucked. I went to put the part for the filter sock holder together and broke two pieces. The pic shows only need 3 and was sent 5. I hardly twisted them and they broke. Looking closely I could see two slots were not cut straight and had small bumps. I will glue back together best I can. One broke in half and the other in 3 pieces.

    Pics of potential sump setup. I wanted to keep the middle section for a fuge and put a BM curve 5 skimmer in same sectinon of socks. Or any other ides like ditch fuge and add an algae scrubber some how.

    Next question. The stand top and bottom ate in two pieces. I am concerned about them not being level. Here is a pic of the top and the white tissue is where some screw holes are. I lined up with overflow to see how it would look cut. Is this okay or should I get a different stsnd?

    Put it together and throw a level on it, then go from there. I wouldn't glue stand or anything like that till decision is made.

    I here yea, I normally glue any wooden dowls. I'm sure you will be fine with the cut I would just cut top of stand and not the back because of support.

    Mike, the stand looks like weekend project. I did solve my baffle issue by filing them down. I had to buy a file oh well.
    Now to figure placement.

    Thanks Mike. I hope to get the stand and sump all situated and hauled down to the new place. This week but will need your help with plumbing. If that doesn't happen will probably take you up on your offer time is running out.
