Tank Tetra 20G high/tall AquaStar "165w" (120w) Chinese LED RGB lights DIY stand (in progress) Glass-Holes 700 GPH overflow kit with dual returns Jebao WP-10 Sump Tetra 10G Reef Octopus Classic 110INT skimmer Cobalt Aquatics Neo Therm 100w heater Rock/Sand DIY using crushed oyster shells and Polyblend bright white grout mix along with rock salt (debating returning the grout mix and getting Emaco R400) Hoping to find somewhere local to buy a couple of pounds of rock to seed it (after waiting for the DIY rock to become PH stable) Probably picking a sand from Petco (to avoid dealing with package delivery) Overkill: I am trying to buy equipment that I can also use on the next tank. I am limited in tank capacity by my landlord -- I would have gone with a 40G breeder tank otherwise. So that is why I'm going with a big skimmer, 700 GPH glass-holes kit, and probably a decent-sized DC return motor even though I'll have it turned down. I'm uncertain about the return pump. I'd like to go with a Sicce one or a DC one to conserve energy. The part I'm unsure about is how many GPH I want -- if I want a fast flow through the sump or not. Update went with a Jebao DC-3000 pump. It's working great but I am planning on ordering a backup at some point so I can swap it out when it has issues.
