    I'm trying to plan out a large reef tank. This tank will take some time, but I'm just trying to get a good plan together. I want the tank to be 85*24*24 roughly 210 Gallons.

    I'm drilling my 55g and have 3 1" holes drilled for my calfo return. I want to add a small pump on a CLS for a floor sweep, but someone raised the doubt that drilled any more holes in this might compromise the integrity of the back glass. Like i said, i have 3 1" bulkheads instealled near the...
