    Is it me, or is that plumbing connected backwards? It looks like the return line is going to the skimmer and the pump is pulling from the return line.

    It's looks good there, it's just that in the 1st set of pics it looked as if there was a skimmer and the filter was connected to it.

    I do love that reflection of the sky though. It may just end up as my new desktop...
