Yes you can put the sump anywhere as long as gravity can feed water to it. I've actually made this reccomendation a few times for people with stock 55 stands since they don't have many options as far as sump size

What are you getting
Got a red/white Firefish and cleaner shrimp, couple Nassarius snails and 2 small red legged hermits. Gotta acclimate the half black angelfish from the 55 tonight and add to tank too. Poor angel's been in 10g for about 11days now.
The cabinet next to tank sounds like a good idea if it works, and you could put couple nice things on there to decorate it too.

If it were me and the funds were there I'd build a stand on both sides with a column tank on either side of it with your plumbing under the other tanks if you can picture that. One could be a QT and the other seahorses or something lol

I feel like it might be strange to see lol!!! But I'm thinking a 40b. I'll take a pic of the area when I get home.

I'd love to have a Skimmer, UV, and perhaps some macro algae with live rock.

There is a 125 on Cl for 100. Not drilled. No stand.... but I'm on the second floor

Lol!!! Sounds pretty cool. I love symmetry and that sounds ideal. I might do two breeders on each side one sump and one another tank


Edit: but then I should just get a larger tank!

When I have more money and a larger hone I'm gonna take my 2 46 bowfronts and stick them side by side one of which is my reef and the other I wanna make a very open water look with non reef safe fish to give it a continental shelf look all in one tank

Here is the space I am working with.... a forty gallon breeder would fit on either side. If I do two breeders it would be a total of 135g on the second floor. Granted I do have a 95g in my living room.

A 1/4 moon tank would look amazing there
