Oh well yea, on a serious note, you should do it outside, in a well ventilated garage.

I would have rather done it outside for sure, just for ease of access, but the dang tank fits so tightly under my stand that it would be a mission to get it out. And then I worried about the baffles coming undone when having to squeeze it back under.. so I'm kind of stuck with doing everything while it's still in the tank stand, which is not exactly easy. I've got 2 out of 4 glued so far and they look good so I'll get the other two in today. The first two were the hard ones. Hopefully I'll be able to plumb it today too :)

Baffles are glued and plumbing is cut and in place! The refugium turned out being a bit smaller than I would have liked but I would rather have a good size return section so I dont have to worry about the pump running dry if too much water evaporates. All that's left to do is prime and glue the pipes and wait 24 hours for everything to cure!!! :D
