Hah! Well thankfully not years, but wouldn't have been able to do it in a weekend or two since I wanted to modify the plumbing and sump and had no clue how to do it. And let's not forget family obligations. Don't get me wrong, I'm anxious to get the tank wet, but I want to do it right and I'm pretty patient with that in mind.Damn straight, no sense getting something set up in a weekend or two when you can take years!
Ah so you have a cadlights too.... wish I had known... would’ve been nice to exchange notes on the best way to do it. I just used coral vue’s metric to standard adapters and so both the return and emergency drain pipes are 1/2”, which makes me a tad nervous. Guess I’ll find out if it will be ok this weekend!Plumbing was the biggest pain of plumbing my 45G Cadlights setup from a few weeks ago... So good luck on the plumbing! Looks like you have everything you need there.
I finally gave up on some of the parts and used a smaller bulkhead where I could but the return line \ holes are too small at 1/2" so I went with some creative adapting using standard tapered pieces versus the straight threads they use...
Actually I did try to post, but the site was glitchy and kept giving me error messages . I realize I just posted this response successfully, so I wonder if it’s a website browser vs Tapatalk issue.You failed at posting one that day. Just sayin....

Couldn’t have said it any better, thanks.It’s 1-1/4 for the main and 1/2” for the emergency. It’s all we could do. We purposefully undersized the return so that the main valve is nearly closed.
Mozby tested the emergency and it can take the load.
The cadlights plumbing g sucks and the hole sizes are dumb. We just dealt with it.
