Wow....... This is just amazing...... I would love to know who did your glass work :) How the seams ended up and how that drip system works in the end? Also what do you heat it with?

i had a guy come in and do all the work as for the drip skynoch and rudy helped me out with it. Essentially the water goes through charcoal filters and fill the tank then theres a drain so to not overfill your tank. i am using 5 800watt titaniums but the drip is dripping warmer water so the heaters arent actually running at all times.

hey guys was thinking of changing my filtration around i am not happy with my sump, i was thinking of changing the sump to using the aqua ultima ii. question is i have a drip system and the drain is on the sump if i was to change and take the sumps out where would i put my draining without drilling to my actual tank i thinks its too risky

interesting....does this take your sump right of it? I wonder how easy it would be to change the filters in it? I'm going to look into this myself.

You won't have to drill your tank if you make a diy overflow (plans for it found in the stickies of the diy section on mfk) for it and have it tie back into the drain. Then it's just a matter of replumbing.
With your setup we could do it with a riser pipe on one side and then rework your plumbing, no drilling will be required but the re-work on the plumbing is to much to type out at the moment.
