I have the same setup as you, when I got my tank it came with a 7 gal acrylic sump. I wanted a fug but space was a issue as I'm sure you know. This Is what I came up with and it works well In the small space & I've got about everything I need in there. The only thing I would have done different would to have put my skimmer before my fug instead of after. But other than some green foam I have seen no issue.

Kc, thanks for the idea - looks like a really nice set-up you did. Yes, we must be creative in this little space we have. Just another curious quesiton while you're here... Do you go coverless on your tank, or do you keep the cover on?

I have the canopy on with the cover ontop of that, then my light ontop of that. I gained 16 gal with my fug and I love it. although it's tall I had to work with what i had. lol I'm using the same light as you, only it's the 30" model.

I have decided for simplicity to go with the Eshopps PSW 75 In-Sump skimmer. It fits the ready made sump perfectly and got really good reviews. AND its $105 shipped.

I also ordered a new light for the fug, it's only 2 1/4" tall so that will clear up some space & look much cleaner above the fug.

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

Nice! It looks really good - do you have any threads with your tank pics? What you got going on in that thing?
