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

Ok so progress was made today! My sump has shipped and so has everything else. I repainted the back of the tank, will take off tape tomorrow and post some pictures. I also went to Lowes and got a 1" ball valve and soo many connection pipes and elbows it was silly. lol I think I'm prepared.

Got some silly questions though as usual.....

first off, how do I attach the output nozzle/bar/pipe to the back of the tank? I haven't seen ANY item that will hold the output.
second, I bought a 32g garbage can to use for my water making for this project. I'm gonna get a pump to pump the water from my back porch water making/mixing area to the tank, about 10 feet. How much GPH do I need in a pump to do that?

Couldn't help you with that, but I sold my midas because I sold his home! lol I sold the 65 gallon and 4 other tanks I had picked up for next to nothing to help pay for the 220. I had no way to keep him in the meantime...so I sold him with his home for 20 bucks. lol

you might need a heavy duty pump to pump quickly. look for a pond pump which you can get at lowes for pretty cheap

could work yeah, also it depends on the PSI, pond pumps are usually designed to pump for water falls as well as fountains so they have more pressure behind then an aquarium pump
