    I thought that was cheap ... because the 75 gallon tank just by itself is about $300 ... everything added is about $1100. The main contributors are the canopy and stand. And of course the shipping ... a whopping $400. But before i get the tank i still have a lot of research to do :rolleyes...

    Hello again, So for a 75 gal tank, would a 20-25 gallon sump be ok?? I would fill up only 14-15 gallons meaning 10 gallons of room incase of overflow. And here's my plan for the sump: Chamber (1) = Equipment including Skimmer Chamber (2) = Chaeto and Live Sand (inverts as well)--> is Live...

    K Well i got my parents convinced enough to let me put the tank in the basement .. which means I can actually look into a 75 gallon. I've also heard its much easier to care for a 75 gallon. Anyways it doesnt change much ... back to research .... lol

    ya thats what i thought. the 10 gal wud be way to overstuffed. I think im just gonna stick with LR, macro algae and the equipment in 1 chamber and then returm pump in the 2nd chamber. K, ill give it a shot at the DIY ... it seems easy lol. I think ill pick up the 20 gal sometime this week...
