    It is very stable. I used a morter mix that Marco Rock sold with it. I was actually very surprised how easy it was to use, and how fast it set.

    Its been 1month 12 days so far. I have just finished the plumbing in the tank. I only had 2 leaks in the system. I fixed one and the other was the ring on the mag 12. I pulled the front cover off of it and broke the shaft. So now Im waiting a couple more days to get that back in and the system Running correctly. Also coming next week is my Asm G1x.







    Ill post a fts when I get all the equipment out of the tank. Hopefully a couple days. Thanks for looking.

    P.s - Feeback is appreciated.

    Purely out of curiosity, why'd you use 45's instead of 90's on your return?
