Well, you have a great tank, and it works ! I've considered a mini-canister (Like a Rapids Mini) and thought about running a DIY spraybar the whole length. The spraybar itself wouldn't be hard, getting the holes calibrated would be tough. Maybe a "reverse" spraybar for the return..? I did see a setup on a 10 using 2 AC 20s. It was neatly done, I love my ACs (I run a 50 and a 20) and they work well. On the other hand, they do push a lot of current, and they look...well, functional, lol. As this tank will on display, was hoping for an elegant look(maybe 3 Mignon 150s..?) but bottom line is price and health of the fish. Anyway, subscribed! Looking forward to reading your updates from time to time
