LOL I know there are silencers out there. For your case if its drilled through the bottom you could do a Durso standpipe or something similar. It's not INSANELY loud, It's just like the crashing of water in the pipes really, I don't have the "gurgle" effect.

I wouldn't panic, If you use (2) 45 degree elbows instead of (1) 90 degree I hear that makes it less of a sharp turn and thus less noise. I haven't glued anything yet so I may try the (2) 45's

Well, I think I'll start out with it being FO and maybe add LR.. I'm not quite sure. I may let it sit empty till next year when I can get a real job and blow (I mean spend..) my paychecks on LR and a protein skimmer and MH lighting.

Ultimately, I want it to be a full blown reef. That will probably be when I'm out of college though xD.

The LFS by me has one employee and it's the owners son (They are in like the most random shopping center, Every time I've gone in there the guy doesn't answer any questions and probably couldn't tell a clown fish from a tang. Kinda sad that I'm younger and more qualified than him.. but oh well)

That leaves petsmart or petco. The petco by me is probably going to go out of buisness, so it looks like I'm applying at petsmart! (Haha I will actually be able to tell someone "no ma'am/sir, you can't keep 10 goldfish in a 10g tank")

Our petsmart recently started SW. Their tanks look terrible other than their main 180g display tank (maintained by an outside company..)

If I work there I plan to make those tanks beautiful xD
