    Hi guys i recently purchased 2nd hand tank in very good condition. The previous owner already had the tank running for some time. However he did modify the tank by taking out the juwel skimmer and adding a hang on one. There is no sump. Im not so clued up on these bigger tanks as ive only had a nano before........any advice on how it should be set up properly

    I ran a 4ft tank without sump at the moment. Only has a heater, flow pump, hob skimmer that doesnt work so great. So it can be done. I have tangs, clowns, foxface amd some other small fish in. Is a bit small so i am busy upgrading.
