    Here is the sump i bought from another BAR member. I know this setup isn't correct, but the skimmer barely fits in the middle chamber. This is a temp sump until i have the funds to get the bigger one but I want to start the tank. Should I start it with this setup, or wait to get the final equipment?

    I'm in no hurry to get the 190 up, though the collecting has gotten a little out of hand. I currently have 4 tanks holding fish/inverts that will be consolidated into 2 tanks.

    And this from the guy who doesn't have a tank yet! :p.

    Better to take forever and do it right once than to rush into it and have to do it again the right way.

    My tank transfer rockwork experience is testament to this. I am grappling deciding between in-tank repairs, pulling out rock and re-doing, and starting all over with all new rockwork. :mad:
