Well after many delays i finally have my new sump and skimmer installed.

Sump is Eshops 200 reef sump w/ dual inlets. Only running one sock to quiet it down. $100 new

Skimmer is Bubble Mangus BM-NAC7 Cone, this thing is awsome, no noise and the pic is after 24hrs of running, a little wet on the skimmate but pulling alot. $235

Misc plumbing $15

Satisfaction....Priceless

Next is to add on my ATO, fuge and relocate heaters to the sump.

Yes I was surprised at the quality of the build, seems very solid and easy to access everything.

That NAC7 looks sweet, wat r its dimensions? I currently have an NAC6A, it has a wide neck but does not cone up, I am also very happy with it, it works like a beast and is nice and quiet, although I already had an impeller break (3 months in). Thankfully it came with a backup impeller, nice!
