After what seems like decades I'm finally ready to start my first marine setup. I'm only starting small here as I will upgrade later to daddy's tank, this one will be used as a "Nano" in future in my daughters room "I know it will". So I'm learning to walk before I run ;). This will probably be an FOWLR or with some zoo's or what ever :lol::lol:

In the design you will see a overflow box (to skim watersurface) will this work?

First couple off questions:
  1. DT glass thickness?
  2. Return pump size?
  3. Will I have a problem with t5's with this length off tank? (availibility of tube lengths)
  4. Plumbing diameter for pipes?
Any input welcome :thumbup:

Looks good. Just one word of advice, Nanos are not necessarily easier and can actually be harder in some respects. With such a small volume of water, problems are felt fast and furious. Be 100% sure you want to go nano before you start spending.

Maybe change that overflow to a corner box and put the hole in the bottom so you can run a durso, especially if it is going to end up in your little ones room. It will be quieter and not cost anything more.

Good luck and keep us posted.
