Hi everyone

Hi everyone, I'm new to this site and forums in general. I currently have a tropical fresh water set up. I am going to convert to a marine tank when we come back from our family holiday. The tank I will be converting is a aquastyle 850. I will be stocking the tank with plenty of live rock and be doing regular water changes and keeping the current filter system. I will also be putting 2 wavemakers in to ensure good circulation. I am a little concerned that due to the design of the tank I will be unable to fit a protein skimmer. Has anyone been able to modify this tank to incorporate a protein skimmer?
Any ideas will be truly welcomed.

Thanks everyone

Hi there! Welcome to the forum

Can't help with your question I'm afraid, but if you post a thread in the saltwater section, I'm sure you'll get some knowledgable replies!
All the best with your transition, and have a great holiday
