Yeah figured that out after reading your other thread. I guess short people or children won't be able to view the tank!

I don't know...what if you get in an accident and will be in a wheelchair for the rest of your life. You'll regret it forever. There's many what ifs! I have my tank 4 ft up which I like more than if I was crouching down to see if I had a standard stand.

Ok so i think im going to go with a 125g for the sump. going to try and find one on Craigslist in the mean time but they normally cost more to buy used then new for some reason.

Also what will i be needing in terms of GPH for my return pump?

Check for leaks! Maybe ask them to fill it to where the silicon is submersed (an inch of water) so you can just see. I guess scratches don't matter since it's a sump.

for sure.

I want to discuss the 40g also. Do you think that a 75g sump would be to much? I am going to do the 40g before the 240 to get an idea on how to do the process of putting a tank in the wall.

I was going to just use the one i currently have but I want it to match the other tank so ill get it from glasscages and have starfire glass put on it and what not.
