I've been wanting to upgrade my 20H to have a sump for the entire time I have had it. I think I might go with your exact plumbing if I decide not to put all kinds of holes in it. I really like the simplicity of your overflow. I could see me drilling my return though and just having a check-valve to keep water from siphoning back out if my pump were to die or power fail.

I had traditionally not been a big fan of the blue backgrounds, but I think it matches the lighting in your tank perfectly. You may have changed my mind about them. My lighting is currently a 250w 12k reeflux, I think adding some T5 actinics (something else I have wanted since I went to MH) would be worth doing. You have just the right amount of blue and it compliments the corals and fish well.

Thanks for the inspiration.

Every time your "cube" doesn't have the same dimensions on each side, a little bit of reef dies.

I'm all about suckering the noobs. I've made plenty of good money off them.

I saw you updated, the tank looks great! I would get a nice wrasse or a pearly jawfish. Classic goby and pistol or neon goby pairs are also something I've wanted to try
