Adams 12g JBJ with Sump & MH

I thought I would post some pics of my buddies 12 gallon nano because its pretty sick. Some of the pics are from his cell so they arenít that good but I posted them anyways just to give you an idea. He has a 12 gallon JBJ that is drilled in the last chamber where the water drains to the sump. In the sump he has a skimmer, phosban reactor, chiller, and a Maxi-jet 1200 is the return for now. For circulation there are two Koralia nanos. The hood sports a 70watt metal halide and dual 50/50 bulbs. Also 4 fans were installed to keep things cool.
If anyone has questions I can probably get answers.

Nice work. I just drilled my 12 gal a few weeks ago. Similar setup, except I just added a 150w MH fixture.

Oh, right. That really came out nice. What are you using as a sump? Got any pics of it? I really dig that MH retro

I'll post some pics here soon of the sump and plumbing.

I was going to go with the Berlin sump but it was to big for the space I had so I opted for one from a lfs. Not sure of who makes it, but I will check.

Interesting. I was just asking because I was thinking about a sixline for my tank, but many people have advised me against it, mainly due to aggression...
