  1. Haha. Yea the closed loop was the reasoning for me going with the pvc bottom. I also have not had a random leak from a bulk head. Only issues I have had with them was if I didn’t tighten it down correctly. I purchased the flooring for the fish room today. I don’t have pics yet but it’s a blue oak. Looks neat. I might get some sheets of FRP to cover the lower half of the walls to keep salt creep to a minimum or at least keep it easy to clean. Once the flooring goes down in the fish room I can hang the door and get to setting up the fish room. Also with the flooring done there I
  2. I’m thinking I will do 2 inlets and 4 outlets. I am going to talk to Jeremy at AA and get some advice from him since he has more experience with setting up closed loops.
  3. I will let you know. The reason I went this route for the closed loop was a couple reasons. First thing was reliability, I didn’t want to have to service a pump repeatedly that’s in a spot that if something breaks or leaks or cracks I would dump 300 gal of water on my floor. Second is noise. Everyone I have spoken to says that this pump is dead silent. I didn’t want to have the typical humming noise in my bar/living space. Third was the 10 year warranty. Nothing in this industry has a warranty even close to this pump. And lastly the ABYZZ name is kind of a status symbol (I got it on Bla
  4. Also this happend!! Couldn’t convince the wife to let me buy one for the return pump. This one will be used for the closed loop.
  5. Got the bar top all prepped and should be pouring the epoxy as early as tomorrow. I finally have power in the basement now. I was running an extension cord from outside through the rear door for any power needs. I have to get this bar top in place before I can build out the door for access under the tank on the bar side. I also keep looking at Home Depot and Lowe’s to try and find 100sq ft of flooring for the fish room. I can’t decide on using LVT. OR finding a big piece of linoleum. Or even doing peel and stick linoleum so I can replace as needed when stuff gets messed up in the fish room.
  6. I’m going to be doing epoxy over MDF. I think I have a picture of our trial board.
  7. More bar updates. Got some of the countertop cut and ready for epoxy.
  8. I am doing epoxy on the countertops. (Stonecoat countertops). We are doing a deep blue with copper veins on the bar top. Probably doing something earth tone stuff on the cabinet tops.
  9. Finally leveled the tank and starting to put down the flooring. We also got the cabinets delivered. I’m trying to get the flooring down tonight and get the cabinets installed tomorrow so I can template and start building the countertops.
  10. Corey. thanks for the response. I wouldn’t say I’m a construction guru but I consider myself “handy”. I got 95% of the info on how to finish my basement from YouTube. I wouldn’t just watch one video and go for it. I would watch many different videos on the same step and pick out from each what I would use. One tidbit to think about when watching YouTube videos is where is this person from and why are they doing (some task) that way. So one of the people I watch is from Canada and they obviously have a different climate than people in say Florida or Texas. I don’t recall what
