so now i'm not sure what i want to do... drill, not drill (i've never drilled myself, or my tanks for that matter lol) overflow, no sump i just dont know. and now i'm thinking about keeping the hex as a fowlr, so that puts anther think to consider there.

 

i wonder if i'll have it filled by the july deadline...

Glad to see you're givin the 20 a try. Always liked your hex, I am sure this will be awesome!

 

If I were to do mine all over again, I still wouldn't drill, but I would put an overflow into the back. Right in the middle, 12 inches total. With the mp10 on one side, I would do the overflow on the far right 3 inches, media/maybe skimmer in the middle 5 inches, return on the left 3 inches. And no my math is not that bad, compensating for the acrylic - you still have a little left over. The tunze 9002 would fit perfect in the middle chamber, or you could do a fuge or media rack. The overflow would need to be 3 inches deep to accommodate the skimmer.

 

Just my two cents.

 

Can't wait to see how this turns out.

 

...just re-read your post. Glad to hear you never drilled yourself! :lol:

Thanks, I hope this is gonna be aweosme. DHaut and got2envy watchout! i'mma gonna get first place.

 

come again, I dont quite get what your saying latteslave. are you talking about a sump or a n AIO?

 

good news is that i decided on a few things, I'm going to do dual 1/2" pvc overflows (one in each corner or something like that, or maybe two together) and since i'm too poor for an mp10, i'm doing an AC70 (maybe modded) for added flow. Plus I think I'm gonna keep the hex as a fowlr.

Drill it for shure.

Its very easy.

The money you spend on a AC110

Is the money you spend to drill a tank.

 

Drill bit = 10$

Buckheads =18$

10G Sump = 12$ + 30$ baffels

Piping = 30$

return pump = 100$

 

100$ isnt that much more.

theres a nano contest by Animalmaster. And I decided i'm not drilling because the cost breakdown is

 

AC70 - $10 for shipping from a friend (got this coming)

DIY PVC overflows - 5$ for both maybe (already have some parts)

return pump - 25$ shipped from a friend

Sump - free (5g bucket)

Pipeing - 20$

 

which comes out to 60$

 

versus

 

drill bit - 14$

bulkheads x3 - 16$

Shipping - 10$ give or take

Pipeing - 20$

Sump - free (5g bucket)

return pump - 25$ shipped from a friend

Risk of breaking the glass and having to get a new tank - 20$

putty - 5$

 

which comes out to - 90$ + 20$ (if I break the tank) - so it could cost me 110$ vs. 60$

 

so i think i'll drill some other time when I have the money to spend on ####ing up lol.

 

All in one...

 

 

Ahh got it, i'll ponder that. Might be good for my application.
