    Okay, so I'm going to try to upgrade on a $500-$800 budget from my 20g nano to a 55g. This will include building my own stand & canopy with the goal of making it short enough for my 4 year old to see and tall enough for the sump/skimmer. The basis for the 55g size is... It's currently my...

    Ok heres the deal. I bought a Coralife220 skimmer to be ran on my 90 gallon system that I am setting up. It will be a 90 gal mixed reef with a Megaflow 4 Wet/dry filter and possibly my 24 gallon NanoCude attached as a refugieum (down the road for the 24 gal ref.). I have an opportunity to...
