I have never been a fan of T5 lighting (tried it and hated it) *hides under rock*
But I am definitely looking into some sort of powerful LED
system. Really, really love the Kessil - any experience with it? Anyone?
I have read some members on here use the ebay LED
I have the Eshopps wet dry filter, and thats pretty much it - no sump.
I would look into a 20 gallon sump with a protein skimmer, and perhaps still make into a wet-dry system. I am not entirely sure how I would set up filtration. Daunting task it seems. Some people use wet dry, canister, the sump with the "socks" that catch debris, etc.
This would also be a great excuse to get that mean clown out of the tank.
