No. I see the images, but I can't find a place that has them in stock, so I imagine it's any day now..

Alight, i couldn't find any either.
Do you think it would be better for me to "upgrade" my tank instead.

40b Reef Planning!

Here is my total for just "upgrading" my tank.

Tank- $40
Sump- Already Have
Plumbing- $20
Stand- $20
Sand- $8
Rock- $25
Powerhead - $30
Heater- Already Have
Lights- $200
Return - $50
Total- $378!!
That's a lot better! It also won't take long to cycle! The powerhead will be another Koralia, but it will be changed later.

My plans for the sump are very simple, 1) lr rubble 2) heater, skimmer maybe later 3) return chamber. Will be plumbed via hard PVC.

I would put the skimmer in the first compartment.

Well, from what I've seen, the new Bubble Magus powerheads are going to be around $250 for what I need.
I didn't think they'd be so much. Thanks for mentioning them though!

That doesn't make much sense if so....I mean, for a hundred more you can get a vortech.

Right... Hmm maybe they'll be less or more. Those are just the "rumors" I've seen. I'll have to wait and see when they come out.
