my new 60
I called my brother and he took some measurements on the tank for me. It turned out to be: 48˝W x 15˝W x 19˝T – On line calculator says its 63 gallons!
So now I have decisions to make. Any and all advice is Greatly appreciated.
I am going do the build on the 60 gallon very very slowly so that I don’t screw it up, and so I can refill the ol’ bank account as I go.
I need to figure out what to do with the 29 gallon that I have now. Before I acquired the 60 I wanted to upgrade the lighting on the 29 so I could add corals and I still want to do that. Is it possible to get a T5 light fixture that’s 24” long to put on the 29, and when im ready, get another 24” fixture and put them both on the 60? If so, then I can transfer the contents of the 29 to the 60 and make the 29 a Sump. I know nothing about Sumps besides it is a really good idea to have one and I would need an overflow since the tank is not drilled.
The other idea is to go without a Sump and make the 29 into a Frag tank. That way I could still do the lighting upgrade and when the 60 is built, just make the transfer and start the frag tank build.
I hope that all made sense. And please let me know what yall think about these senarios!
