Ok gotcha. They probably say that to not be held responsible for damages caused by the water.

Do you know much about stock skimmers? Are they pretty much garbage?which one would work best for my sump? I have a HOB one right now rated for 100 but want just one in my sump.

Depends on the stock skimmer you have. Some hangons are quite good. But if you have a sump no reason not to put one in there. I would check the reef octopus ones. If you go to Aquarium Supplies, Aquarium Supply, Aquarium Equipment, AquaCave.com Offers, Discount Fish Tanks & Fish Tank Supplies for Saltwater, Marine, Coral Reef Guide, Freshwater Aquarium they list the sizes and the footprints of each so you can find one that will fit in the section that you plan on putting it in.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Ok, the stand on the 60 looks like it's got quite a bit of wear and tear. I don't think it can hold the total weight. My fiancées dad just found a 125 gallon with stand for 190. Sound like a good deal?

Anyway, to get my build fix in, I set up my 30 gallon tank at my friends house today and it's up and running! I will keep it lightless throughout the cycle.
