    Ok, not wanting to jump into a bigger tank just yet but i'd like to know the cost involved of building a 200L cube, and then having a sump housed underneath.

    So need costs on:
    Building the cube, as well as sump
    Lighting
    Skimmer
    Pumps

    I can get a stand made myself, its just everything else i'll need (want to upsize in the future)

    Just a point Matt, this would no longer be considered a nano system. A nano system is usually cosidered to be a system with a total water volume ie tank plus sump plus refugia if any of 130 liters or less

    I would also need a tank that I can use my chiller with (Hailea HC-130A) which is only rated for a max of 300L, so display tank + sump must = 300L max..

    Who could I ask for prices on glass + tank build??
