    Can I drill a new JBJ 24G nano tank and add a small sump underneath for a DSB and skimmer, or is it easier to build a custom tank?

    I want to start a small nano in Jan, and thought maybe it would be easier to use a 24G JBJ rather than going custom as the all in one factor is appealing.

    What would end up cheaper in the long run?

    Any advice is greatly appreciated. ;)

    custom custom custom dude no question in my opinion.....

    as for cheaper or more expensive depends on what you are looking for and what you want to keep .......
