    I have been lurking for a while now, while I finish the physical build of my 55 Gal tank. It is 48"x13"x18", glass, has a center support from front to back. I got it from a friend who used it as a fresh water tank. First I was planning on sterilizing it with a low ratio bleach solution. I...

    Up until my "Mini Crash", I was in the process of setting up a wet room in the basement. My thoughts were to install a huge acrylic sump to handle my current 90 and the planned 175. Then relocate or repalce my equipment, but have it all down there. But with talk of softies giving off toxins...

    So here is my plan for my tank. It is going to be a 90 gallon reef tank... 4 feet long by 2 feet high by 18" deep.

    I am planning on building a sump this weekend, if my design works. Hopefully the "drawing" has all the needed (other than it's 11.5" wide) information. I am unsure of the skimmer make (no identification on it), but the pump on it is a Rio 1100 (382gph), the pump in the return is a Rio 1700...
