    I would suggest that you do a couple of tank visits to see what and how things can be done.

    Building your own aquarium, sump and pre filters/weirs is quite easy!
    Making your own reactors and skimmer is also very easy.
    For corals a tank no deeper then 20 inches is easy to sustain with adequate light penetrating the waters to enable simplistic photosynthetic functions, if you don’t use a substrate, then the tank will benefit greatly by making your floor sloping to the front for a cleaner aquarium.
    For the weir/exit, a scallop cut to the glass and make a small glass box for your waters to over flow is best, the ways in which to make highly functional gear for a totally successful reef at home in total, are extremely easy!
