Work is slow...again
So I decided to throw caution to the wind and setup one of the empty tanks I have laying around. It's a 30 gallon cube "ish" 20x18x18 tank that's been drilled in the upper corners. I've cut some glass I had laying around to make overflow boxes similar to the glassholes design. One will feed an airstone skimmer and the other will go straight to the sump.
I've rebuilt the stand to be 4" deeper than the tank to hide the plumbing and wires. Now I just need to skin it with the leftover wood from the kitchen renovation. and design a canopy.
I aquired a 15 high tank in a trade with Jim Roth but alas it's to tall. So I'm the quest for a small sump (preferably drilled). Something like a 10 gallon max dimensions 22Lx18W.
I'll use the Eshine light I got off Brandon and possibly add some exocotic stunner strips to adjust the color and be able to mimic the dawn to dusk effect.
They only piece of equipment that has me stumped is what kind of pump to use. I haven't had a tank this small in a long time. 20 years ago there wasn't much of a choice for small tank circulation. It was Hagen powerheads or nothing. I still have them and they work, but I don't want equipment showing in the tank. So I'm considering either a Quiet One or the Sicce Syncra and leaning towards the Syncra. But what size 1.5 or 2.0?
