Is the bottom glass tempered? If not, why don't you drill the hole on the bottom glass on either side.

Ok so I changed to a Peninsula style tank that will be 72x36x24 or 72x48x24. I will be ordering it next Friday and I am starting the stand build right now. It will take 10-12 weeks to deliver.

So far I invested in another AI Hydra 52 and 26. I already have one of each. I plan to connect the 52 and 26's together to make 2 separate lights with 6 pucks each. ( Get my flow?)
I also ordered 3 of the CARIBSEA ARAGAMAX OOLITIC SELECT SAND 30 LB
I got another Vortech mP40. the new quiet drive one.

Will 2 mP40's be enough to power the 72x36x24? How about the 72x48x24?

I run the HSA1000 on my 120.
Just need a powerful supply pump and you will have one of the best skimmers going.

Ok so AI will make sure I get a good size skimmer coralbandit and alex07. I sent my mp40 quiet drive back and Im ordering an mp60 instead. Should I buy the quiet drive or will the regular be fine?

I've read that the quiet drives are stronger than their predecessors. Either would work I'd think.

EDIT: I would hope that there are more pumps in the tank though. 310 is a ton of water for one pump...I run two MP40's in my 55. They are set very low, but even at full strength one shouldn't be enough flow for a tank of such size.
