    Hi Guys,

    I kept marines for about 5 years but left the hobby and I'm returning now, I've never had a small tank, my previous setup was quite large.

    I was given this tank recently, used to be a freshwater tank, 80L, would it be possible to run this tank without a sump? I am planning to put a divider in the back with an overflow and compartments.

    Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    you can put in dividers at the back. But that would just steal some real estate for whatever fish choice you want.

    What would u guys suggest for filtration? I don't think i want to put a dividers in since the tank isn't all that big to begin with?

    Not planning a lot of fish. More corals.
