    Hey Guys, thinking of getting back into the reef hobby. a house move and some big changes have put it on the back burner.
    Want to set this bad boy back up but not looking forward sump set up. I was wondering if you guys think the tank could be successful as a sumpless set up?

    Any input would be great.

    Thanks

    thinking of doing a glass holes overflow 700 with emergency drain setup and a eshopps rs75 sump. would this be a good combo?

    So this happened. The wife and i brought up the stand and could not find a place we were happy with the size or layout of the peninsula style tank. So because of all the work in the stand we decided to adjust the stand to accommodate a Cube style AOI. Let me know what your think!

    Thinking either the JBJ 45 Gallon or the Innovative Marine 40. Any other suggestions, I'm willing to do a sump if its the right idea.

    Thanks for the input guys! IMG_3213.jpg IMG_3214.jpg IMG_3215.jpg IMG_3227.jpg IMG_3229.jpg IMG_3230.jpg IMG_3236.jpg IMG_3239.jpg IMG_3252.jpg IMG_3255.jpg IMG_3256.jpg IMG_3257.jpg IMG_3260.jpg

    She's almost ready to roll. Just figuring out what heater to run and I'll be adding water.

    What do you guys think?

    A lot of light spilling out though

    Is there a problem with that? What is there to do to correct it? i figured the closer the light was to the water the better for the corals to grow.

    The light spilling I mean is the light that's on your floor and not in the tank
