Nice tanks guys!

Just curious, what are you guys using for filtration in your systems? And for skimming?

Running a 15 gallon sump/fuge combo, with a Coralife Superskimmer 65 'in-sump'. Return pump is a Mag 5, return split to feed the fuge. Couple of Maxijet powerheads in the main tank.

20 20, can u post a few pics of ur sump/fuge? i want to turn my old 20 to a sump/fuge but i still havn't figure out the design lol.

hacteck, some ppl think that having a UV in a small tank is not worth it. My lfs told me not to buy one but i bought one anyway. But, IMO:

9W Coralife Turbo Twist UV = $90
Maxijet (110GPH) = $15
Pumbling = $5
Crystal clear, parasites-free water = Price less

One draw back of a UV is that it depletes the pod population in ur tank but i don't really mind it since i don't have any fish that only feed only on pods :P

About plumbing the UV, if ur looking at buying one, i suggest the Coralife Turbo Twist UV. Melosu suggested this to me and he's also using one. It's cheap and the turbo twist design is very clever. Plumbing it is really easy (took me 10mins!). Instructions of how to plumb it comes in the box but i'll just give u an overview. The UV is HOB. u need to buy a seperate pump, submerge it in ur tank. I used a flexible tube to connect the pump to the UV intake tube. I also attached another flexible tube to the output tube of the UV to feed the output to my skimmer's diffuser box. HTH
