For the past few years, I've been evolving from a hobbyist to a vendor in this industry. It's a tough transition for a few reasons, but at my heart I continue to be a hobbyist to the core. At our club's annual one-day conference, I set up a booth as a vendor. In addition, I'm still actively involved in the planning stages, helping make sure that our club runs it successfully. Similar to what we did to plan for MACNA last fall, we have to think about the vendor hall layout, do all we can to promote
Here's a nice tank to keep an eye on. Michael's a DFWMAS member, and has really paid attention to detail with his new setup. Click the image for a larger size.
Under the tank, the acrylic work was done by Melev's Reef.

As you know, I build sumps for a living. Here are a few pictures of some made in the past 30 days or less.
A split sump due to the way the stand was built. Skimmer section and return on left; refugium in front half of right sump, with return in the back.
Simple sump with cooling fan bracket
A Single Pass Sump with refugium
I ship a lot of sumps, but the ones that need to be crated seem to be more important, so I'm sharing.
This one is made with 3/8" cast acrylic, and is 48" x 24" x 16". It's a tough sump. This is the front of the sump. It will be installed in a basement with the refugium side up against a wall.
The three zoned sump provides both a skimmer section, a long refugium zone, and a large return
Two big sumps had to ship this week, requiring that they be crated and shipped Fedex Freight. To keep costs reasonable, I had to load these up in my trailer one at a time and drive them to Fedex Freight myself, rather than have a truck pick up at my location. They add charges if you need a lift gate, if you need a fork lift, if you are in a residential area, etc. My trailer has always been useful, back when I was cleaning floors, as well as during my carpentry days... plus all the remodeling
