Had to do this last night on an established tank. Practically drained tank, scooted over a couple inches, removed old sump put in new one, added sand (was bare bottom), replumbed. Long night

Forgot to say this was a very informative – gave you a BIG thumbs up!!

Jason Keane says:

Great video, just binge watched all your videos and subscribed 🙂 Just one question on your plumbing, regardless of our best intentions there will always will a leak, overflow or some kind of accidental spill, are you not concerned about those copper clips and water making it’s way onto them and into your sump somehow?

Reefer Nanoman says:

Nice channel. Check out my nano reefs in my channel. Subscribed.

Nancy Campbell says:

Great information, thank you so much.

Inappropriate Reefer says:

Great video, plumbing always intimidates me so it is reassuring to see how it’s done! I also painted a return pipe black in my tank with the same paint, no problem so far after 1.5 years.

Paul Blaney says:

great vid . good to know on the reef safe paint … I def hit the sub button, and I’m interested to learn more . 🙂 When you have some free time it’d be really cool if you stopped by and checked out my reef / channel and let know know what you think of it. I’m always up for some constructive criticism. thanks 🙂

You say that this uses DC current. What do you use to get your DC?
