DIY All-In-One Reef
Ok, so I've been looking at all-in-one tanks, and they are super expensive. I know it's expensive to build your own, but I think it would be cool to design my own. I want to make something with about 8 gallons. It's going to be a saltwater nano reef. I want to do something with hidden components. I've heard that I don't really needs filtration system or a sump, and that all I would really need is a power head and thermometer and hydrometer. Is that correct?
What kind of design could I do to hide behind the cube section? What would I have to do, just drill a hole for the water to get in an a place to stick the power head out? And vents to Lear the heated water back in?
