I spent a lot of time reading on fuges and different ways of filtering a reef tank. From what I have read the bigger your sump/fuge is the better it will benefit your tank. My tank is 72g, my fuge is 20g, I think the more water volume and the more room you have for macro to grow the better it will benefit your tank. If you have the room I would go with the larger tank in stead of what will get by. You will be glad that you did in the end!

that makes more sense. thanks i have no room to add on a refuge that big because there is VERY limited space under the tank, i can barely fit the 10 gallon sump under there. i would like to have a mini-fuge so i can get some macro algae and a few mini-brittle starfish

I will be making a trip to the ocean in a couple weeks and was wondering if i could pick rocks out when im there? I no its not a good idea to get them from close to the surface but i could go down deeper to get the rocks.....thoughts?

are rocks from the ocean suitable for home aquariums?

looking on the internet i found out the collection of wild live rock is ILLEGAL,.....thanks for telling me guys!
