you can install bulkheads, then reduce pvc size till you get to what you need. It shouldn't be a problem. I think Greg has a closed loop system on his reef.

I still know nothing about it. At least you can still use bulkheads. But are the holes in these positions, except all on the tank?

I hope ! I have a friend, actually my best friend, interested in my tank! I was asking 450 but since hes a really good friend id take 300 from him ! I hope he buys it I am just researching myself to death on bulkheads and whatnot. If i did buy this tank id have 130 gallons total water volume, I am turning my current 40 into the sump

Remember sand and lr will fill some of that volume, and if you do set up a closed loop you'll have to account for water volume in the pipes
