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.

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
