Hi all, I've been lurking the forums for about a month now getting a lot of great info. This is a really great, friendly forum. Needless to say I've finally gotten around to registering.
I've returned to fishkeeping after a long hiatus. My family always had fish when I was younger and now that I've moved out I have the means (and room) to get back into the hobby.
My question is about using an overflow and sump setup for a freshwater aquarium. I've been pondering this for quite a while now. Does anyone have any experience with "integrated" freshwater systems? I'm not opposed to other means of filtration, I have hob
's and canisters on my other tanks. It would, however, be nice to have the heater and other equipment hidden in the stand. I dont mind any extra work in the initial setup, I enjoy working on my tanks. My plan is to set up a 125 gallon African Cichlid tank. I found a store that has really good deals on pre-drilled AGA's just north of me over the weekend so that got me interested again. Anyway any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
