I know, lol, I hated suggesting it. But she already bought a 20L for a sump too. Not that I couldnt find another use for a 20L LOL.

I think you may be right, maybe hob equipment would be a better solution. It should come out cheaper and easier to, no building a DIY sump.

I ran my 55g without a sumo and got to 0 trates after a while so it can be done and that was with a fluval filter too.

lets see what buffy has to say when she logs


Another note, maybe she will upgrade the 75g at some point anyways, most of us do. It's that tang fever that makes us do it. hehee

LOL I hear ya I lease tanks thats how i deal with mine (MTS) I keep one 90g at home in case i need to pull fish i have a tank up and running I keep journals on all of them helps me keep track of whats what.

PS 265 for 200 is a great resale value even if you dont need another tank

The Tank Dilemma

Good Morning.

Interesting conversation ya'll had LOL. I love that brainstorming.

Ok. Now. No I do not want use my 75G for a sump if I got a larger tank. Yes I've already thought about the 125G or higher. (Who needs a couch anyway)

The 55G is going in my bedroom with a sump, the above stand will hold my 55G so I can use it for that and set the sump on my smaller dresser next to it.

The 40G Breeder was going to be in living room perpendicular to the 75G.

2 10ga tanks - 1 for qt and 1 for hospital.

Now, yes, the shelves are removable. I forgot that they were. However with the shelves removed, the spacing still does not fit any of my tanks. So I'm watching for a stand for my 75G I can use. No I do not want to build one. No I do not want to sell the stand on Craig's list. Yes I will have to empty it but I'm hoping the transition will go smoothly. I'm not afraid of water, but if I have any livestock when it happens, then I worry bout that. (I've made my own drain pump so I can just pop it in and push the water to the other tank)

Carey's suggestion for a canister is an option I could do but would it be a waste? If I got a regular sump done for this would I just be "tossing" out the canister?

The LFS recommended the Fluval 405 when I first went in couple months ago, but I didn't get it. Is that the canister you're talking about Carey?

25 high x 14 wide x 15 deep is the measurement of the right side of the stand without the shelf would be plenty of room I'm thinking for a canister.

So for now......that leave's me cycling my tank.

Carey, did you say something bout coupon for when I order lights?

Did anyone look at the price of those pumps I listed last night (cost if I added right would be 62.98)?

Any thoughts on my test results?

I hope I covered everyone's thoughts LOL. Thanks for all the input, I actually loved the back and forth conversation, it was awesome LOL.

Wow long one, if I missed anything throw it back out there. Thanks guys ya'll are awesome
