Comments and criticism welcome!

I would really like to know if I need to drill holes in the fuge dividers for better flow. Thanks!

Dont use a coralife skimmer and I would put the bubble trap after the fuge. You really just dont want bubbles in the display.

Doh! To late on the skimmer. I have it hanging on the back of my tank right now.

Make sure which ever skimmer you go with you check the water height. Make sure it works with ur sump. Any reason why the middle dividers are much higher than the outside ones. Also second USC-fan abt the trap

Looks fine to me

agree with fote your skimmer will more than likely need a stand or something to lift it up with your 14'' clearance. looks good though i constructed mine same way

I have some plexiglass left to make a stand with and I will put the trap on the other side. Im still unsure if i need to drill some holes for better flow coming into the fuge area.

curious-when water evaporates from this system (assume no ATO), where do you see the water level lower?
