This is going to be a really sweet tank!

Any thought to the fish you will be putting in? I am interested to see how you setup the sump! Having African Cichlids most of my life I am used to having a sump, but with the planted tanks I use Canister filters, or at least I have so far. So I like to see how different people go about setting up their sumps!

Best of luck to Ya!

Looking good so far! It'll be awesome to see an Iwagumi that's not at the nano scale for once.

I think that on larger tanks using a sump is really the only way to go. You get the chance to put so much equipment in an out of the way location, that this fact alone makes it a far more preferable option. Heating/cooling, filtration, protein skimming, autodosing, etc. all in one location (out of the aquarium) is a win-win situation provided that emergency measures are available in a power outage. I too am looking forward at how this project progresses.

thanks, i want a school of maybe 30-40 green neon tetras and maybe a second school of another fish with a contrasting color. only thing im not sure about is whether the two schools would mix or do they stay separate

Like Styxx mentioned i love having a sump it keeps the display tank free of any clutter

I never really used the powder as I never found much need for it, but more power to you! Can't wait to see things progress.
