Thanks!

Good evening! My name is Matt. My family and I moved here from California at the beginning of the year. I had a 150g and 29g buocube out there but sold everything because we were moving here. We recently bought a home in north Ogden and I’m getting ready to setup a new tank.
Here are a couple links to my other tank threads with my old local reeef club.

Tank Threads : TriggerHappy's 210 Gallon Playground

So, the sump is STILL not on-line, but I made huge progress this evening.  I plumbed a stationary drain from the tank directly to the sewer; no more buckets!  This being my first time time tackling a project like this, I'm feeling pretty good, but still have so much further to go.  BTW, I learned to go from ABS to PVC it is best to use some purple primer and some green Oatey transition cement.  Better to be safe than sorry.  I find myself spending way too much of my time researching and at HomeDepot/Lowe's but it will be all worth it in the end.  
In my haste, I forgot to do before pics, but you'll get the idea:
The wye that I bought was too long for a simple cut and fit, so I had to run to Lowe's to buy a new 3" 45.  I also had a rubber coupler with hose clamps to help out.  So, I cut out the 3" straight pipe and the 45 and went all new.





For redundancy I added another ball valve downstairs.


The result was that I was able to drain off half of the tank in ~10 mins.  I plan on having different pipes upstairs to equal how much water I'd like to drain.  Very happy with the results and, so far, all is high and dry.

Jeff,

Thanks for your your reply. I've been doing a lot of research and talking with the current GM. Hopefully we can go in and make some changes for the better. Update SOP's and help SeaQuest thrive.

I appreciate your input.

Another update.  Long weekend Labor Day = a lot of tank labor.
Not finished with the plumbing, but here is what the mixing station is gearing up to look like



Here is dry-fitting the plumbing. (sorry for the orientation...we need to be able to rotate to fix this) 


The only way to cut pipe! lol (not really, but was a huge time saver!)


Was going to use conduit strapping



Then decided not to...I like this stuff much better! 


All glued up


Meanwhile, downstairs.
Gotta love hole saws.  had to go through 2 2x4 headers...not fun.


grin and bear the pain


so done with that noise


Medusa...what more to say.


Getting all wet!


If I had to do it again, I would have gone with straight pipe and not flex.  Flex has some give, it is so hard to deal with!  Tonight I will try to get sump plumbed and get a full system wet test going.

Having worked there in the past, I can tell you a few things from first hand knowledge. The staff is great - they do their best with what they're given to care for the animals. Corporate on the other hand is difficult to work with/for. They don't allow ANY of your input on how to do husbandry, you do it their way or you're out of a job. From my experience (any virtually any other reefers who have worked for SeaQuest), their marine husbandry practices are outdated and the corporate office, specifically the CEO, doesn't allow any new ideas or ways to do things. We were literally told not to do our own research on husbandry practices. Anyone who follows the Standard Operating Procedures without question can thrive at SeaQuest, it just gets frustrating when you know that there's a better way to do things there. 
I'm thrilled to see that they're finally getting someone with hobby experience, during my time there almost none of the marine husbandry staff had any experience with saltwater aquariums.

Hey all

I know a lot of you guys don't know me, but I'm having an emergency and don't know quite what to do. As lick would have it, yesterday I broke my hip and am in the hospital. I'll be here for three days at least. Went it rains it pours. While I'm in the hospital, my children call me and tell me the ceiling is fallign apart from water damage. After trying to figure out what's causing the damage we found out my tank has sprung a leak. So my dilemma is I had some friends who are not fish people clamp the tank temporarily, but I have no circulation. I have an airstone in there. I don't know if there is anyone willing to come grab my corals and fish before they die. If that's a possibility and anyone is willing to to do that I would really appreciate that. You can call me at 8013189706. I have surgery at 5 today. I'll be at the hospital a few days at least. I don't know what's going to happen to my fish


Here's a list of my fish

PS. I'm a little loopy from medication so some of these names might not be exact

Majestic angel large
Yellow angel
Yellow Tang
Orange shoulder Tang
Blue Tang
Atlantic Tang
Two wrasses
Four green chromas
One yellow Gobi
Mated pair of goldbar maroon clowns

Four anemones
Bunch of soft misc leathers
Green bubble anemone
100 lbs of rock

Thanks for even reading this
