    Cool video. I'm thinking that butterfly fish isn't reef safe though!?! I built my sumps, with plexiglass seperators also, cut to size from the Home Depot.

    Yea, those work great. But the bio balls tend to harbor nitrates. Thow Live Rock rubble in there instead. And your off and running.

    Many people have made their own fuges. You can save a lot of money by making one out of a fish tank that can fit under your stand. I have a ten gallon tank with a 3 gallon fuge under mine.
