got a model number on that octopus?

ive seen 40 breeder reefs with both 6 and 4 bulb t5ho so who knows?

idk if youve had any conversations with mr_X, but he was confident to recommend the 4 bulb to me if i thought about doing clams and sps corals because of the dsb im really shallow on water.

plus mfdrookie516 is planing on using a 4 bulb. im kind of hit and miss on his build though i need to just read it to get an idea of everything he is doing.

another 40 breeder guy is halfmoonb. you might want to shoot him a pm and see how he is doing. he running a shallow bed.

I'm thinking about the Reef Octopus DNWB 110. As you can see, between the light and skimmer, I'm pretty big on overkill. I want to go with a recirculating because I want to mount outside of sump. It is just so much easier to get out and clean that way. That's y I was originally looking looking at the coralife and other hang on skimmers. But the design and reviews of the reef octopus is just soo good. Oh and I won't be getting the skimmer until the end of January or begining of february.

The one I'm looking at basically that same design, but a recirculator.

I'm gonna be drilling my tanks pretty soon. I want to do a herby overloy system. Where can I find some overflow boxes. I was looking at glass-holes.com. They seem nice but it's not exactly what I'm looking for cause I want to do the herby method. I think I need something with a box on the ouside of the tAnks also. I might be able to do it with the glass holes kit, but then I would have to drill two holes pretty close to each other and that seems structually risky.

you could make your own overflow box. custom box would let you do the herby overflow. bulk reef supply did a tank with one on one of their vids, maybe shoot them an email about it.

That's exactly what I'm looking for and that's not far from me at all. That's awsome. I went to their website and the boxes are 700gph for $40. That's not bad. Thanks.

I think glass holes has a better deal and it's a full box, no silicone needed.
