If you dont have a tank already though, getting something sump ready is easily an option for you.
Of my myriad experiences I ran a 75g saltwater acrylic with a sump loaded by an overflow with an eheim pump. To make the situation sweeter I ran a skimmer driven by an ozone generator, until my dog started to develop eye infections.
As complex as this kit was 25-years ago, it's a toy compared to contemporary sump tech. While my needs are met handily by my current kit (125g+FX6+FX4+800W heater+Maxpect XF350 flow pump). My goal in responding to wik the way I have was to illicit more information from a person whos 1st post had hung-out unanswered for so long.
