"Ok so once upon a time. There was a reefer whose job it was, to cut the noob tail clean off & christen one a wise old reefer. But those days are past & tails have grown long. The reefers need guidance. But who will lead now that the wise are silent. Who shall step forward. Who will hang them self with an extra long tail. Mmm... we shall see, we shall see. " - Bitts

I have an already running tank which may be connected as a sump which is still up in the air. If connecting an already setup sump is not allowed then I will not use it.

Thinkin that with am in communicato. Pm me if you need anything. Can't do much but I'll do what I can.

I don't understand. You have to set up a new tank, but it doesn't really matter when. Also, if you have an existing tank, you can just transfer everything into a new tank and be ok. Size also doesn't matter, ie I could plumb a 5.5g into my 120g and be fine.




We have so many failed contests now that the word 'contest' is as ubiquitous in thread titles as 'random' is. Bah.
