I am really considering giving up the drilling idea and just buying a Deep Blue reef ready 75 for $270 and some change or a 90 that runs $320 or so. I figure I can swing that and not have to worry about drilling, overflow box, etc. and I could use the current 29 FW as a sump like it has been suggested several times. I will DIY a sump and stand (or buy a stand) and save up for good lights.
I am feeling pretty overwhelmed by the amount of options out there and the prices.
Not really a question, just a rant I guess. Wondering what others would do or have done.
