    Hi all
    I have a 4 ft aquarium that I deconstructed. The main aquarium must be reef and reef fish . I want to build a 4 ft sump with 3 compartments. I want to close of 1 and 3 in a cabinet and leave the middle open as part of the show piece. The middle will house live rock and a eel. I am new in this game and would appreciate all the input I can get. Is this a good idea or a am I being a idiot.?? Thanx

    It can be done. But make sure the chamber is big enough and your filtration system is good. Eels are messy eaters.
