Next week should be ordering my glass for my custom build. Once thats finally here i will be creating a proper tank journal thread. In the meantime lining out my last few decisions.

Per the photos below i am looking at doing an internal filter setup for simplicity.




The pump will sit in the middle looking at around a 700 gph return will be a u tube that feeds into a y flex setup to two directional ball flex tube things so i have 2 directional outputs.

Overall tank dimensions 36"x30"x20"
The internal filter will have a floor space in the tank of 8"x12" basically a sheet of paper. But i am greedy about my relestate, would a HOB or even canister be a better idea... Granted deviates away from my initial idea but... Looking for some feed back etc.

why not reduce the depth and increase the width?

personally, i'd rather drill or go with a canister. especially for a custom tank
It's almost a 3' cube as is lol. And 20" isn't much buy the time you get substrate etc ;)

I had contemplated a sump but wanted to make it fairly self contained should i need to take it down and ease of service etc.
