Just my personal opinion, but I would go for the rectangular tank so i'd have the 24". I'm still struggling with my 18" on the 125g to place corals on the sandbed, just no room. lol

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

Yes, I think she needs a job at sea world! Thanks Carey, that is what I was thinking, and it is good to have someone who knows exactly what I am talking about! I barely have room in the 18" to clean the glass. Okay, so 24 it is. Carey, do you have running water sound from your tanks or is it pretty low? It is the only thing I really can't stand, but it may be diffferent if I am hearing it all the time it might become like white noise.

Also, is there a way to have a tank drilled for holes, but plug some up and not use them right away?

I have a decent water sound coming from both my 125g and the 20g rimless tank. I kinda like it, very relaxing to me. I also like the hum from the fans on the lights lol. Yep I'm weird....

You can put dead end bulkheads in those holes you don't wanna use right away.

I just know what I've read here and other places. hehe....

can't wait to see how you set this tank up, you did such a good job with the current tank.

So, I will have a 180 acrylic priced out for me today. I will have this for my overflow because me and running water don't mix...

And still deciding on sump placement (below with ato or in basement with ATO and big bin to make up water, etc.). I think basement would be good, then I can store the QT under the DT.

Just got the quote and it was less than I was thinking, so it's a go! I am still trying to decide about the basement, but the sump is 48"x16x18 so it can fit under the tank. Do normal sumps slide in/out of the stands? I only ask this because in my 72, I had to put the stand over the sump to get it down there! Thankfully discovered before I started pumping water into the tank, lol!

have you compared the price of an acrylic to a glass? you might get annoyed with the acrylic, they scratch so easily and over time they need to be buffed and polished
