I need to order my tank asap
for it to be ready by the 7/18 show from glasscages.com. The specs will most likely be 84x24x25 but I"m having trouble figuring out how to make the overflows/circulation system. I have three ideas so far.
1) An overflow in each rear corner with a 2" drain hole and just run the returns over the back of the aquarium.
2) Same as above except an a 3rd overflow in the middle of the back wall.
3) Make the entire back wall an overflow. By this I mean a couple inches from the rear wall add a second wall that has the overflow holes all along the top. I thought this would be neat because you wouldn't see any overflow boxes and I would probably flow a ton of water. Then I could have 2 or 3 drain holes drilled behind this wall.
Any ideas or suggestions would be great. BTW
, I'm getting the front and sides done in low iron glass, it's similar to saphire but a different manufacture. The tank will be a reef tank with various soft/hard corals clams/fish/inverts etc... I will have 3x250 mh
's and 2x72" VHO
actinics I belive. I will most likely be using a custom 50gallon sump/fuge and some other huge circulation pump with a couple current switchers.
I'm wating to make sure the weight will be okay on the 2nd floor where my 110g is. The new tank will be roughly twice the weight but will twice as long as well spreading the weight around. I"m tring to locate a building insepctor or someone to come look at my house before I order.
