More info to come. This is no longer going to be a frag tank. Still working out a few details. This build will take a few months to put together. But hoping for livestock be fall. 2C6D8171-4DF8-4549-B14D-650FEF1086CD.jpeg

Thinking of getting one of these and using it externally to help with heat. 

From the manufacturer

eFlux DC Flow Pumps

Connect Sync LOOP

LOOP is the first and only system designed for connecting and syncing lights, pumps and other accessories into a single, controllable network.

Expandable and upgradeable, LOOP is the most affordable intelligent control solution focused on ease of operation and user experience.

+ Wireless Control

eFlux controllable DC flow pumps efficiently produce strong water flow with high pressure. Featuring a sealed DC motor and magnetic drive design, eFlux flow pumps can be used inline (external) or submersible in both marine and freshwater.

  • Quiet operation
  • Up to 65% in energy savings
  • Safe, low voltage 24V DC
  • LOOP compatible
  • Soft start gently ramps pump to speed
  • IC electronic detection protects pump if no water is present
 

FLOW 24/7 - Small. Quiet. Powerful.

Adjustable Flow

Unlike traditional AC water pumps, eFlux flow pumps are DC powered and completely controllable. Simply turn the dial to adjust the flow until the optimal flow rate is reached. This eliminates the need for flow restricting valves and ensures peak performance using less power.

Incredibly Easy

A cinch to install, eFlux Flow pumps have a very small footprint, allowing them to fit into even smaller sumps and tight spaces. High flow combined with high pressure makes them the perfect choice for return pump applications.

Hmm, between this light and the basalt rock you are lookin for I thought maybe you were going freshwater planted tank. Possibly a seagrass biotope?

Nope. Although that’s a good idea. The next piece of equipment I buy will most likely give it away.

Nope, much easier.  Use sharp tools though 

Just regular hole saw? Or diamond tip?

The acrylic I have cut I used my regular woodworking tools.  If I fed too slowly or had dull tools it would heat up and gum everything up.  I had the best luck with carbide router bits with a bearing on them so I could follow a template.

Thanks. I’ll have to figure it out. I need 2 holes drilled.

I used a hole saw and it worked great. Local hardware store gave me the following advice. 1- don't push down hard, let the saw do the work. 2- Cut for a bit and back out to get the "gunk" out. These bits will heat up and melt. 3- sand the edges for a nice finish. Easier if done warm and using a hair dryer to heat up a bit.
