5g sump?

ive seen all the benefits of a sump would it be worth it to throw one on my tank? or would it just be to much work for something so small

I vote no sump for you. Just an added expense for a couple gallons. IF you keep up your tank you won't notice the difference I think.

Just concentrate on one thing at a time. We need to get some fish and critters in that tank of yours.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

How big is your tank again?

5g is a bit small since people recommend a large area for a fuge.

you can get a AC50 70 or 110, i'd go with the 110, it should fit on your tank and still hold a large ammount of chaeto and some LR rubble, you can also get an AC30 impeller to slow down the flow or cut some blades of the stock one

Just make sure u have a filter that's pulling 9-12 gph per the size of ur tank for example 10g do a 100gph filter that's what we use to do when I worked for a pet store to keep the fish happier and our tanks clear because ur filtering more water
