Nice video! Did you find a noticeable difference between your MRC skimmer and the BK?

The BK is a 250ext that I'm planning on using on the second system for QT and whatnot. I was highly impressed with what it produced. After making a couple modifications to the Pro 3, it pulls out a tremendous amount as well. I never had them both running at the same time after the pro 3 mods so I don't have an apples to apples comparison unfortunately. I do know that the BK250 isn't rated for 1500 gallons.

haha - yeah, people not in the hobby love the tank and are overwhelmed with the filtration room. people in the hobby spend as much time or more back there.

Thanks UPS Freight for delivering my new 200G cone bottom WC tank yesterday!

Absolutely. Food grade.

I had them put (I believe) the first wash down system on a Pro III, then a larger Venturi with union, Sequence 5800 NW pump, and the latest mod is what I call a "snorkel" in the collection cup lid. Since I drain into a 5 gallon bucket then pump to a drain, it really allowed the skimmer to breathe regardless of skimmate buildup in the cup. Much more consistent now.

Skimmer sounds awesome! Maybe a quick video of it in action or a wash down cycle for us guys that have to wipe down our cups with are hands?

Wow. Having 2 kids and your company rapidly growing sucks all reef time. (Slacker) Well that and some mystery pest anemone overload, I figured it was time for a reboot. Took all the rock out and nuked it. Took 800 lbs of sand out and cleaned it. Now reaquascaping, setting up a new all the time QT system, upgrading to new Apex, upgrading to all LED's, etc etc now. I'll try to get pics and progress going again.

Thank you for posting up your build. I read this thread years ago and it's always been stuck in the back of my mind how impressive the filtration setup is.

Now, I've started my own build finally and I'm stealing a lot of ideas from your build.

That's great and what this is all about! Setting up my new QT system in parallel with getting rock structures built and in the display. I need to figure out the easiest way to upload pics with posts....
