    I'm glad this sump has 2 drain hole spots, because I'm gonna plumb a separate/remote refugium to the system as well in the future.

    I should have brought this up before, but since water isn't in yet...I'd encourage you to consider an arrangement with the sump on the "top shelf"!

    Having a sump at waist height is SO nice

    I've thought of that, but the issue I thought I would have, would be the overflow drainage. The sump and the tank would pretty much be the same height, so gravity wouldn't be in my favor. The water will have to flow down the overflow pipes, thru the wall, and then back up 4ft into the sump.

    I thought of doing that(running it into the basement) when I was gonna put the tank in the front room. But decided to place it in the family room, since everyone is always in there.

    Smart choice! I believe locating your tank in a place you frequent to be a key to long term success! If you have to go to an extra bedroom, a hallway, or a basement it becomes more of an "extra thing". By being in your living space you notice when things are not right quickly and you more likely to keep your maintenance up (to avoid an eyesore in your living space)!
