Hey! I am very curious about reef design, specifically the nano reef style. I have read a few books and would like to design my first tank given i cant have pets in my current apartment. I Figured I could start building my tank and subsequent materials without water or fish. I want an all in one tank, I Just have a few questions to start me off. 1. Is there a thumb-rule for filtration to water quantity? 2. Is a shelf tank rough for beginers? 3. I have allotted 4 chambers, all I know is the inlet, and the outlet...the other two I'm up in the air between Refugiums, Calcium RX, and Protein skimmers. Can you help me narrow them down? 4. Glass or acrylic? 5. is there a thumb-rule for tank thickness? Any input or information would help out greatly. Thanks.
