thank you.. Thats completly understandable. I bet it will come out awesome. I wish I could get rid of more eyes sores out of my tank but I only have a supply, return, and 2 powerheads. so there isnt much of anything more I can take out of the main tank. I did have my skimmer in the main tank. I hated it in there.
