Whatcha gonna do with the 10 and 20g tanks? Inverts or other specialty stuff? 40g breeder tanks work well in shops for fish and corals. And how many separate systems? In other words, 1/2 of the tanks tied together without for coral (no copper), and the other with? Or maybe even a third with copper. Gotta be able to qt new stock and be able to treat I'm thinking.

And gotta have a plan to deal with the water you'll be sending with fish and coral purchase and how to auto top off.

Looks like fun!

The FW tanks are going to be primarily sponge filtered. Some of them (depending on individual stocking) will have ACs running as well. We want each tank to be effectively isolated from the others.

Those are in the house. :P

We'll probably put a display out there at some point. No idea what though.

We're starting out with FW. The 10s and 20s are going to be breeding tanks for various fish. We have quite a few proven pairs and fry to move. The SW tanks will be 1/2 and 1/2. We're going to run 2 systems 1 fish, 1 coral. The coral system will go up first and start with a 48x48x12 tank. I haven't figured out those details yet though. lol

Thanks for the reminder. ATO is one of the biggest question marks left.

Auto top off... deal with evaporation to maintain stability.

I went looking for auto topoff plans for my 200g tank, but i'm finding i don't need one. in over 2 weeks with no top, this thing hasn't budged in salinity. i'll be doing a water change before I top this thing off. If the tank is big enough, I'm not sure I see the need.
