Sorry to run off topic slightly... But to clarify the new tank would have its own support, a handmade iron table, very innocuous. The tank/fuge would be back to the side edge, and I would make the top-line of both tanks evened out, with the fuge bottom likely higher than the base of my display tank.
The photo of the top of my tank is to show the area where my plumbing can fit(and why I suspect the "small" hob
fuge online may not hang on correctly). Only a small hole for cords and the opening under my lights. The rear of the tank has a centered opening that is taken up largely by my hob
skimmer. Those lights in the photo are temporary, I will be running TH5O lights with little feet elevating them a few inches above the opening.
