I just noticed it on the exterior side. The tank is completely beaded with silicone. I was just concerned about the surface area of the joint being reduced since 1/16" was offset.

cmor1701d, you stated in another thread about not having a wet/dry and just to go with live rock, skimmer, and a pump for filtration. Is that literally just a 20g tank underneath my 125g tank which gathers the water from the overflow that contains a skimmer and a pump? How would the gravity fed water stop flowing out of my 125g if the pump crapped out?

Thanks again for all the help.

Check out Melev's Reef - Sumps & Fuge's

The sump has 2 or more compartments separated by baffles. If your tank is not pre-drilled you will need a HOB overflow. Water from the tank flows into the overflow and down to the sump. The overflows are designed to break siphon when the tank water goes below a certain level. The returns also need to be situated so that the back siphon is broken before the sump overflows. My sump can hold about 30 - 35 gallons. It normally has about 8-12 gallons in it.
