Hey, how's it going everyone? I just signed up for this awesome forum today. I bought this tank off clist on a whim and have decided to go for a large planted theme. It's a 90Lx30Wx24H 300 gallon acrylic. It's alittle rough around the edges, but I'm gonna give it a go. While money isn't a huge issue right now I'd like to stick to a do it myself type project. I plan on building a stand and filtration system, which I've never actually done.. I understand that the sump is not ideal for a planted tank, but I'm gonna try and make it work anyway! I'm a total rookie so Please tell me what you'd do if it was you. Thanks

Depending if you want to go cheap or not, idk what to tell you. I went cheap and used some organic miracle grow capped sand and gravel. for lighting, i used a 48 inch shoplight from wallymart with 2 40 watt plant bulbs.

Sumps are great for planted tanks and MTS would be great to because they are nutrient rich, just make sure your light is strong enough to grow your plant list, I know a guy with good prices so pm if needed, there are good product to make scratches and yellowing a thing of the past, good luck and build a strong stand that going to be heavy.
