The one i saw was a 40b. The one's they are selling now were their saltwater sales tanks. Drilled holes at the top. I'm picking up on this weekend for a sump filtered shrimp tank.

Welcome to the local forum! There's a great wealth of knowledge here and we have an outstanding group of local folk to swap with. Got anything on your wish list you are looking for?

Oh, i know tony. And i really like the fact that all maintenance takes place outside of the tank. No need to bother it's inhabitants.

As long as your not looking to suck up the detritus and crap from the tank, water changes are a breeze using a sump tank. You don't even have to worry about the temperature of the water you put into the sump either because once you turn the return pump on it gradually feeds the water into the main tank and swings in temperature happen over a long period of time so the fish don't mind/notice.

Not off the bat. I have a shipment of plants coming in from member Gordon. would love to learn more, see others tanks to see setups and get ideas.

Right now im trying to get my co2 right, and just started dosing liquid ferts. - Flourish & Iron.

EDIT: Well actually, Im looking for a decent regulator w/ solenoid and bubble counter. Just picked up a Ph Controller from one of the guys in my reef club.

well, if you are ever in Philly, you are more than welcome to stop by, see my tanks and shoot the $hlt about plants, tanks, whatever. btw, if you are going to use CO2, i HIGHLY recommend you go with dry fertz. they will last a LOT longer, and you can get all you need for the same price as what you paid for both of those. with liquid and co2, you're gonna also need nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus. is that the third one? i haven't bought liquids in a while, so i forget...lol

also, check out the local tanks in the post your local tanks forum in the PA thread. i am almost positive any of the local members will answer any questions you have, if we can
