Does that mean I can drill and make the two 1.5's into two 3's or does it mean id have to run the Overflow 1500 instead of the 3000??

With the holes being 1.5 do I have to run the overflow 1500 or can I drill them into 3 inchers and still run the 3000 ?

I would leave it the way it is holes and skimmer box I believe it will work. is the bulk heads in the holes if not you will need to get some and run pipe you will have the tank rdy. If I were you and theres nothi.g wrong with the tank id buy it. One more question about the tank how is the center brace of the tank it will be glass or made into the frame. If everything is good go for it. You do realize that you still havnt reached the costly stuff yet. just letting you know. Bigger tank less problems more money. Thats pretty much how it goes. That is a good deal I think

I would do sump/refugium. Use a 40 gal breeder and make your own. That what I did try craigslist and see if you can find a cheap one I think they run 80 bucks new where I live though.

Bro If you have a petco down there they have a dollar a gallon sale on until
The 19th of the month. You can buy the tank 40g breeder for 40 bucks. And look at YouTube search "DIY refugium" or "how to make a refugium". there are some good videos. I'll call you 2mrw and explain it also. Pretty easy build.
