I would suggest the same as sump, fuge and hospital tank as well
I understand t8's are not sufficient for a frag tank I was thinking this more down the road and at that time I will be upgrading the lighting fixture if i'm still interested in doing so.
I think I may keep it open for a quarantine/hospital tank since I now just acclimate my fish/corals seperate in a containter.
I am thinking of maybe a sump but I dont think I can get the tank inside my stand. It will fit inside just fine but the doors for the opening may be a little small. The tank is heavy, obviously so I can fit the 10g between the wall and the back of the tank where the access is easier. That may rule out my options for a sump/fuge however I really want to do a fuge.
