im going to buy a 20 long from a guy near me. he is giving me a great deal. 1 stick of epoxy, the glass panels cut and polished by a glass shop, 2 tubs of carbon, media chambers, phosban media, silicone, and the tank itself for 50$. i wont need much more, just a sump pump, which will be a mag 5, and some flexible tubing. everything else is setup.

i just bought the 20 long and im putting in 2 of the 3 baffles. my skimmer will be next to the intake and then my refugium. after that will be a bubble trap with the pump going up at the end.
