My goal of this tank is initially three fold:
1. Use as a 'storage' tank rotating corals between the display and prop tank whenever I get tired of the look in the 30g cube.
2. Allow some of my coral to grow into colonies.
3. Handle over flow. I am totally maxed out on space as it relates to my display tank.
I have ordered a custom glass tank 48x24x12. 4 drilled 1 inch bulkheads used for return inlets. Overflow box with a 1.5 bulkhead drilled on the bottom which will flow into a sump. Still trying to decide on sump design, skimmer, lights, return pumps, etc. Any advice to make this a successful project is GREATLY appreciated.
The tank is slated to arrive within the next 2 weeks. Pics will be posted once it arrives.
I will be using my old cherry stand that used to support my old 120g reef. Look at pics below.
Wish me luck!!
