Thats what I was thinking but if you look at the front view of the tank I have more crap hanging in the tank now as it is. "Yes I No" (sump)
You know the bad thing about it is the people that come over to my house and look at my tank that dont know anything about saltwater reef tanks....the first work out of there mouth...( Dont you ever clean your tank) then the story begins...
