Is the return pump included?

I'm debating on plumbing the sump on the black one into a separate 10 gallon tank, to keep it more stable.
The sump sounds like a wise, although more time consuming choice.

so far its been working out well, I've had the white one for about a week with my betta in it. i seeded that from his old tank. i still need to figure out exactly what I'm going to do with the nano reef, on the espresso one, before i go any further.

Sounds good and they look nice. I always vote for sump, especially on such a small reef tank.

Just bought a java fern. Big and dried out but I got it really discounted. I just hope it bounces back. And I added 3 more panda cories finally bringing the school to a proper size of six!

Got 2 margarita snails and 1 red bandit trochus for the 20 long, dripped them for 45 minutes. Fed all the tanks. Added seeded media from the 20 to the 10g QT to kick start it.

Those banded trochus snails are fast! Awesome snails.
