Yes that's fine you'll just need a HOB overflow and return pump to match.. is it possible to get it drilled though?

Actually its not you could get a trash bin and put the rock it there with a heater and powerhead. Then you could drill it and trust me it would be worth the hassle

The sands a bit more difficult but still worth it and a refugium is a seperate compartment to house macro algae to naturally lower nitrates and phosphates also a good home for pods and more LR

You don't need a sterilizer but it can't hurt. That's a 20 gallon long on my 46 bowfront (best pic I could snag during lights out lol)
