Welcome Dac! Another option is to have a sump above your tank. Ha ha. Then your tank is actually the sump ;) you can put a glass sheet inside the tank in one corner to act as skimming overflow. Then put a nice pump into that to feed the sump, and let the sump drain back into the tank. I almost have something like that. How about some pics?

Welcome Dac

Can you try not to type in CAPS, it is considered as shouting in forum etiquette, cool, thanks :)

I currently have a canister flowing out to a fluidised bed filter(Red Sea Product) which is housed in a tube and has silica inside. Also a Prizim hangon skimmer. A few power heads, lighting and and thats it.

Admin,
Sorry about the Caps was just lazy that part of the night.
Please forgive me !!!!!!????:razz:
