    Hello all! New to the forums. Just got my L2 a few weeks ago. I'm not necessarily new to the reef game, but definitely new to using an ats. My last build was about 10 years ago, n somehow I ended back up in it. here's my build ...so far.

    My filtration will be ATS only. I built some mounts out of acrylic to countersink the ats about 1/2" below the rim of my sump, so I have just enough room to service it. It's definitely a tight fit.

    Nice build!

    You may want to cut the pipe on the centermost drain, you want that pipe to stop just below the water surface (0.5-1") of the sump. It's the same concept as the BeanAnimal tuned siphon, if it's too far below the water, then air can get trapped in the pipe. But if it works OK the way it is, no problem.

    Already done I trimmed the pipe after the pic. It was slightly gurgly at that length
