I'm going to add another pice of acrylic to my sump for mechanical filtration and redo my aqua scape,

for the sump i was going to do the mechanical 1st then the refugium or should i do the refugium 1st then the mechanical ?

for the aqua scape I'm going to do two island's, and save the rock i have left over or give it away to some one who wont's it

once every thing settles I'm going to stock it after the holiday's

opinions are well appreciated

NICE VW, we have a 81' Westfalia Camper van!
Have you stocked this tank? I read earlier in the thread you were going to put to clown gobies together
they'll probably try to kill each other, go with a clown goby, shrimp goby, and one or a pair of neons

Depending on the Pistol it should be fine w other shrimp. Sex shrimp will do ok in a larger tank as long as no one eats them and the Pom Pom would do just fine too. Good to see you're back into the tank. How's the coral I traded you doing?
