    Got tired of my biocube and have spent the last few months getting equipment and building up this elos 70, finally got it wet last weekend.

    Here it is as it sits right now, lots of cleaning up to do was in a rush to get it running after staring at it for so long.

    Things are doing great, I moved all the livestock over from my biocube and ended up with TONS of frags, happily getting some money back from local groups that are buying everything up.

    Hate having the DIY temp frag racks in the tank, but had to put it somewhere!

    is there a reason you used recycled water PVC?

    It's actually purple colored PVC from bulk reef supply, I just liked the color.

    Yea that's what Purple pipe is for, when you set up an irrigation system that uses non potable water your required to use purple pipe and purple accessories so ppl don't try and drink the water.
