    The "wishbone" definitely looks like one piece. It looks great without coral. What do you guys plan to put on it? Acros? They will probably get somewhat the same PAR from the center through the left side of the wishbone ledge.

    Yeah probably SPS. Right now I have a mix of SPS and a few Duncans sitting on the top arm. I placed a few mushrooms on the base.

    What did you use to cement your rock together?

    But I love that piece you did, it gives it that feel of "oooh if l lean it against the back I can get a nice area to build" but you don't actually lean it against the back!

    A Durso can be tuned to be pretty silent. But you will run into issues when going for a higher return flow. If you can get the water to stick to the side of the pipe and not ripple (thus drawing air in), it will be silent. But getting a big enough pipe to have a higher flow is challenging.

    A bean animal has a full siphon which is tuned to your return flow. It is full siphon so no air gets in and so it is silent. The partial drain is to take the slight variance the return may have. The little trickle down the pipe will stick to the pipe and not cause noise. Then you have the safety of the emergency drain that will take the full return flow as well.

    That sump n skimmer came from a tank tear down I purchased. Never used them myself.

    That's awesome. What's the difference in the two pics. Is the top one processed?
