I think the fluval 405 would work for you, it's main purpose will be to get particluate matter from the water and also gives you a place to run carbon or anything like that if you need to. And yes, if you later go to a sump the fluval wouldnt be needed on that tank. Just measured my fluval's height,, with the lock out clamps it's 21 inches tall. So yes, you could probably fit one in there.

I will PM you the code, I bet theyd be po'd if like 100 people used it at once then theyd change it on me. lol

Looks like youd be fine for a canister. You even have the opening laready for the tubing to go in and out of.

Yeah I broke 4 sinks, flooded 2 bathrooms and a kitchen and now I've fixed 2 of four sinks (which one STILL has a slow drip) and 2 to go. I've think I've bought out the plumbing section of all the stores in town.

Plus I've figured out how to hang my RO (which I still have to do). Cleaned all 8 tanks that were in garage and got them in the house. Moved a heavy weight machine out to porch, Got to go fishing a few times, and even rode my bike yesterday and got in 10 miles.

So I think I got something accomplished but I really haven't figured out what. It seems all a blur. LOL

You are one busy woman! Darn, I get nothing done usually in a day. Unless of course it's fish related. lol

@Carey- if you don't buy that 265 for 200 bucks imma fly to florida and kick you
@buffy- dual/triple 5 gallons for a suimp on your 75 it should fit. If not, def a canister, the 405 would be awesome for your 75, just please don't pay 200-225 for it at a store.....I'm pretty sure you can get it new online for 120-150

Yes Grizz, please post, thanks. I know you were being sarcastic but if you were lol......wouldn't bother me. I've learned to take SOME things with a grain of salt.

Carey, thanks for the code.

Now, to find a canister along with ordering lights, pump and refractometer. Dang I gotta work, I need money LOL.

What would I do with my Emperor 400? Just use it in another tank or do I still need it in this one?

JSmith.....plumbing........Quit cussing me out!!!! Haven't you read previously I HATE PLUMBING!!! LOL LOL LOL
