Well I got my order I love the lights but the 4 fans are a little loud but I can deal with that the led moon lights rock and it looks like a different tank with 4 t5 bulbs.

On a side note the sea clone is skimming away started it up last night and already had to dump the collection cup seems to work good to me but I have nothing to compare it to so... The rio nano skimmer works great aswell I am very surprised with it

Looking into manufactured sump tanks found a couple on Kijiji for 100$ does anybody use them?here are pics of them which would you choose they are both 100$ first pic is CPR aquatics sump, model CY 194(19gallons) second is a 35 gallon

Can you fit both of the sumps under the tank? I would go with the one with a larger footprint so you can add stuff in if you want. The first picture looks like a nice sump but it doesnt look very roomy. lol

To get people to post you can always say you are putting ten tangs in a 55g!! LOL That would get people going. hehe

I agree with Carey, the one on the right seems like it would be more versatile, and allow you to add equipment to your set-up.
$100 is a really good price too. My Eshopps 30" sump cost almost $200, new.

$100 for a brand new sump AND return pump is a steal!!! Great find Ryan.
