Hello to All, after losing my 20L tank a couple months ago to a three year old with hands of the devil, I have decided to get my feet wet again. This time I'm rolling with a 40B with 20L sump. I'm still planning but I'm looking to get feedback from those with experience on certain things as I go. Here is my list so far. This will flex as I go forward:
Sump: 20L DIY (Skimmer will determine layout and dimensions)
: BRS 4 Stage Value Plus (75 GPD)
Substrate: 40lbs Fiji Pink
Need to Buy:
Overflow: Gl*******s 700GPH
Return Pump: Mag 5? Eheim 12XX?
Skimmer: No idea where to start
Lighting: Coralife Lunar Aqualight High Output T5 Fixtures 36" (156 Watts)
Controller: Neptune Systems Apex (model undecided)
ATO: Tunze Osmolator Nano
Circulation: (1) MP10WES
Stand: DIY 2x4 and Plywood
Rock: 20 lbs BRS Pukani, 20 lbs Reef Saver
So first order of business…..
1) Gl*******s Overflow: Is it easier to mount it centered or in one of the corners? (I'm sure it may affect the plumbing right?) Also comment if you have experience with their product.
