Jakes 34g Rimless Reef Build.

so i picked up another tank the other day. it is a 34g rimless cube. dimensions are 20x20x20. this is going to be a reef tank since i already have my 72 fowlr. i'm not sure how i want to set this up though, it is a custom made all in one cube. it has an acrylic panel in the back just like a bio cube.


heres a quick pic.




now what i am trying to decide on is should i run this like it was made and keep things simple with the all in one design and just put a big ato reservoir in the stand. or should i drill it and run a 10-20 gallon sump?

i also got a tunze 9002 skimmer and a k2 viper 150 watt metal halide with the tank.

so what does everyone think?

If it were me I would just keep it the way it is. Then again I don't know how to drill a tank either, I would probably break it, .

yeah most likely that is what i will do. i was just thinking of different options to do with it. i have a friend that drills tanks so that wouldn't be a problem. if i leave it the way it is how should i setup the back? right now all it has is a bubble trap before the return so i can make some panels and set it up anyway i want.
