Kio, my 180g has 2 corner overflows that return to a sump (I think it's 40g). Each overflow returns to its own chamber. In the 3rd I have a Coralife 220 Super Skimmer, 2-300 watt heaters, Purigen bag, carbon bag, and a 1200 gph pump that provides return flow. My tank is a FO, but you've seen the pic showing how clear the water is.

Not stocking anything else. Just transferring... I'm going reef, so that'll be the focus. My LEDs will be here Wednesday, can't wait.

The 180g I'm buying is reef ready, but will require new kits. Would it be easier to plug those bulk heads and use my existing equipment? Everything I have is rated for a 220g.
