Novice seeks advice. DIY or reef ready tank?
Hi all. I'm considering investing in a 75g tank and would like to eventually set up a reef tank. I'm still in research mode; however, I would really like to hear some thoughts on donig a DIY tank (i.e. setting up the internal overflow box, drilling for the plumbing, setting up plumbing & sump, etc.) versus purchasing a "reef ready" tank.
Also, if anyone knows any good links that help my understanding of plumbing issues (i.e. PVC piping, closed loop systems, flow considerations), I would greatly appreciate it . Thanks so much for your help.
