They've been sitting in my basement ever since, collecting dust, but I recently acquired a 20 long and 10 gallon sump I was considering rigging up.

    Hey guys I am about to build a 20 gallon long sump for my 40 breeder.

    New to "Reef" tanks. I have a 150 pred tank and have decided to start a "Nano" reef. I have a spare 20 long that I would like to use since it will give me some room for some nice aquascaping. Will i run into problems finding lighting and ect? that won't break the bank. Or will it be cheaper...

    Hey guys I'm working on my first Nano build. I'm going down from a 75 and I think im pretty set on either a Aqueon standard 29 (30x12x18) or a 20 long (30x12x12). Lighting is most likely going to be 3 nano-customs (evilc66) Par38 20K LEDs with the 60 degree optics. Which of the two tanks do...
