After over 9 months I have to start from scratch on the 240

Well I purchased my 240 gallon tank back in January 2012. In February a local tank builder started working on my new tank.

He was going to setup two internal overflows and build a sump and refugium. The build was going to take 2-3 months and that was fine with me. After the first deadline came and went I started getting a little concerned.

This started a string of it'll be done next week or two weeks from now that last until mid-November. In the middle of August was the first time I got the tank back. The first thing I tried to do was fill the overflows and see if they leaked. They did.

The tank builder came by the house twice and couldn't fix the leaks. I took it upon myself to fix the leaks with Weld On glue for acrylic. I was just unable to stop the leaks, and after talking to the tank builder we decided to go with thicker acrylic for the overflows.

I was told two weeks when the tank was picked up, which ended up being 3 months. When the tank was dropped off again, it leaked worse than the last time he picked it up. I still didn't have a sump or refugium either.

At this point I decided to call it a day and let the tank builder go. The tank was dropped off to the new builder Saturday night, and two days Later the following Monday the new overflows and returns are complete. The sump should take a few days.

Seems like the previous tank builder started a new job and didn't have time for my tank. He also informed me that my tank was the last he would be working on.

I'll have some pics of the new tank build very soon :)
