That hole is probably where the return is supposed to go. And you would need to use a sump with that tank - or remove the overflow, patch the hole in the bottom, and pray (most likely a bad idea).

However, a sump is a great idea, so...there you go. I am not partial to the bottom-drain overflow design, but there are plenty who use it.

Oh how did I miss this?
Absolutely NOT high tech. It's the lowest of the low.
Plants are a long list, and it does change at times, check out my journal in my sig

Narelle I'll be able to join this club soon! I recently got a 150g that I'll be setting up in the coming months, once I move things around and make space for it.

How do you guys light these huge tanks though? Mine came with 3 small (24" maybe?) 2-bulb t8 fixtures and I have a 48" Sat+ LED I'll be tossing on there. I can't imagine that'll be enough light for that 30" height on the 150g, even for just low tech like I'd like to do.

Clear Water I wanted to thank everyone for sharing there photos.

I think that reef tanks have met there match. If some of those tanks were in my house I doubt I would ever leave. Some of those tanks are just unbelievable. Those photos will keep me motivated for a long time.
