welcome gemini....post some specs on your proposed designs from now before you add water or even buy anything for your tank....that way you can get pre advice on any decisions you make before it costs you time money and potential heart ache later on once your tank in running for a while.

start with some pics of the raw tank and dimensions,also what equipment/sump you already have?:p
