Looks awesome! Help me learn something though, why are there 2 unions right next to each other on the return lines going back into the tank?

The top one is 3/4", reducer into the bottom one which is 1", but you're right, would have made more sense to put just a reducing collar, then put the 1" unions lower, or not at all.

Wow, like the plumbing. I was trying to figure out the lines and have to admit...... it took me an embarrassingly long time to figure out why you have a unplumbed line to the filter sock chamber (yeah, frag tank).

How do you like the Reef shadow overflow?
Did you get it from BRS or directly from them?
What else did it need, that was not supplied?

Aesthetically I like it a lot. Will wet test this weekend.
Got it directly from synergy.
I just needed to plumb for drains. Curved bean animal pipes come with it. So you need some 1.5" PVC for the 3 drains inside and outside the box. That's it.

Leak test is going good so far. No leaks, knock on wood. VECTRA L1 is very powerful. Have it on lowest setting. I am sure I will have to raise it for frag tank and a couple reactors.

Found out frag tank stand will be another 2 or 3 weeks, it was damaged during shipping so planet is rebuilding it. It will be harder to plumb it with display already in place and running, but I'm not waiting.
