If you were to drill, the choice would be up to you as to where you put the holes. Left, Right or Center, its your choice really.

Okay well I will be doing some drilling. I am assuming the 700 gph kit from cuting holes.com will work. I will get my hands on the tank and stand and the hole cutting kit and then will go from there.

Can I get away with a 10g sump. the stand that I have will accomidate that easily but I don't know about anything larger.

As for fish, I was wanting some decent color, nothing big. i was going to research compatibles with the clown fish. I have 5 kids so I need two "nemo's". Any recomendations?

In regards to LED lighting, would the stunner 24"' 12 watt, 12,000K white with the mix of 445nm blue work for this 29 gallon tank. I mind as well go for reef capable so I can go with something for my clowns.

What is the width of your tank? Reason I ask is I might have a T5HO Quad Light that I am considering selling soon..

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

Ok, I will know more in the next couple of days as I am upgrading my 32g saltwater to a 55g tank and have a 30" T5HO Quad which I may not need.

If you are interested in the light can come to an agreement? Let me know as I was going to add it to to the classified ads here.
