    That's pretty cool. Although i wouldnt even bother if i had the money. Too much headache for me...my dream is to have a tank in the wall some day. Thats enough for me. Im a simple person. :)

    I would definately not go with a natural lighting system if I could afford to tear down an existing house and custom design a house to be built around a custom reef tank. The only thing I like about his plans are the tanks size. I would want at least a sump/refugium system equal to that volume size to support the tank though. A good surge system, macro algae scrubber, live nutrient exporters and lots of halides would be a must. Hell, with a tank that big I might allow a few fish.

    I couldn't agree more. Anything over a 125 is overkill IMO. To many terrible things can happen with anything bigger. Not that it can't happen in the 125, but you won't loose as much.

    Are you calling my 240 overkill? You try turning down a 240 drilled tank plus stand for $100!!!

    Yes, but not little enough to turn down the tank.

    Biffer, I can loan you some diamond hole saws if you ever decide to put real overflows in that monster. Gots plenty of them. Three inch holes for two inch bulkheads look huge. You could actually do a 15 X turnover through just one two inch bulkhead hooked up in a closed loop through a Sequence Dart pump, and only use 140 watts. Just think, no more ugly, obtrusive, heat producing power heads taking up space in your tank. Well, I had to try!

    Thanks for the offer Fatman. The next time I move, I will probably end up tearing down my whole tank, selling off the rock and animals and setting it up all over again somewhere else. Or I may just buy a new tank that isn't all scratched to hell. When that time comes, I'm definitely going to have the new tank (or my existing one) drilled for a closed loop system.

    Scars add character. Right, or did my ex wife lie to me?

    NoobDeBiff is covered in scars. Mostly from motorcycle accidents, but some burns, some cuts, etc.
