Connecting a 20G to my Wet Dry

First and foremost, I want to thank all of you for answering my posts. My 90 FOWLR is my first SW tank, so I just have a ton of questions. I think my LFS is used to seeing me every other day now... LOL.

In any case, I told my LFS that my wetdry is so tight right now with the protein skimmer that everything is vibrating off of each other. He suggested to either get a bigger wetdry filter (which he really didn't recommend, because of cost) or to bring in my wetdry and have them drill it on the side, then drill a 20G and drill that tank on the side. The end result... connecting the 20G to the WetDry to give me a bit more space.

Does that sound like a good idea... or should I just not even bother with the whole idea?

Thanks again guys!

Let me first say that I am by far not an expert. However, if you have room to expand, I would recommend it. Are you running a refugium? If not, you could use the extra space to incorporate one.

I don't have a refugium... and not to sure of what I would put in it. I really don't want another tank that I'd have to clean and take care of at this point. One 90G tank is enough right now... LOL. I may take the 20G tank and put some live rock and stuff in... but as far as anything else...?

I read the article on this site about refugiums... and I'm not even sure what "cultivate plankton or amphipods/copepods" is. Would this be an area where I would put some snails, worms, etc?

As said, this is my first 90G tank... so I'm kinda lost.

Thanks for all your advice!
