I ended up getting a used 60 gallon acrylic cube and stand yesterday. I was going to use a CPR BakPak HOB
skimmer that I already have (will get a regular skimmer when funds allow), but this cube has a build in overflow, which I had not originally planned for.
My thoughts are to grab one, maybe two 10g or 15g glass tanks from Petco to use as a sump and possibly refugium. Put them next to each other, connect on the long sides with a bulkhead and, for now, use the HOB
What size return pump and what manufacturer would be good for this? I need as quiet as possible since this will be right next to my side of the bed.
Also, what size bulkhead would allow enough flow between the tanks AND does anyone know if the Petco tanks can be drilled on the side panels?
