75 gallon reef build

I had a thread on here before that is to old to post in lol. Anyway I'm doing a 75 gallon reef with built in corner overflow and a 20 gallon sump with no chambers containing a heater, filter pump, LR, and a PH. I just got my stand (5 months later). I'm going to sand and paint it in the morning maybe have the tank on it the the end of the day.

why have a sump at all if all that's in it is a heater and some rubble?

then you will need partitions.

LOL back at cha!
they were HOB skimmers. if you want an IN SUMP skimmer, you'll need partitions. that is, of course, if you want it to function efficiently.

don't have the tank for a chambered sump...i realize hang ons aren't as efficient... I also know that skimmers are not absolutely necessary... and I know the local fish store uses HOB skimmers on very successful display tanks that they have. All this combined I think I should be fine. I'd rather not fill my build thread with this so PM me in you have anything more to add to the topic.
