I would pick either the fuge or the ats. Since they consume the same things they both wont be able to sustain together.

What did you come up with? How do you plan on doing it?. I heard alls you have to do is suspend a plastic mesh with a good even water flow running down it and light it from both sides

Changed my mind today, I'm going to use a 55 for sump. First chamber skimmer, second ats powered by its own pump then bulkheads to a 20 tall for return and live rock. Does that sound proper?

Sounds good to me, similar to what I plan on doing instead of the 20h imma use the 30b my only concern is will there be enough water flow in and out the 20?

Cut the wall and installed tank, just ordered hole cutter, skimmer box, and sand, I'm getting close. I scored 4 hydor 1400 and a 5, with a smarwave controller for $225 off Craig's list. I'm going with 1" bulkheads with 1.5 lines, and a 9.5 return.
