    thinking about this for a sump what do you guys think?

    that's the next investment I need to make and I refuse to build my own out of a glass tank.. i will prolly run an external fuge too... should have enough capacity to catch all the drain back water... its basically a 75 gallon tank...

    also considering buying the two finnex hmx 500 watt heaters today
