Newbie advice - using old Cade tank
Hi guys, i'm new to saltwater tanks, and have just picked up what looks to be an older model CADE tank (I believe to be a HL900-BP Reef).

Hoping for some tips/pointers in getting it set up - in doing some research I've gathered that the plumbing setup has room for improvement?

Have attached some pictures - last image shows a damaged weir which I am trying to find out if CADE has replacements for. If unsuccessful, what would the best way to repair be? I'm worried about using the wrong adhesive.

Thanks in advance!

I set up an old cade which is almost the same as yours. I think mine is the 800 model with the corner weir. I ended up ripping the whole weir out and drilling the back of the tank and installing an overflow box with 3 pipes like a 'bean animal' set up.

Is the damaged part of your weir actually going to stop it from working? Maybe you could just patch up the hole?
