due to the aqua scaping i have considered if i am going to at all that they will be in the Refugium for the added benifit they give but as for in the tnak i am leaning away from it .... some of the stock i have in mind does not do well with plants ... at least from the reading i have done so far.. but few aspects are 100% decided yet .....

how much over hang do you have at the front ?

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

actually none... the center support is even with the edge and the ends are even with a 2x4 all the way across..... the ply wood is black so its hard to tell but there is next to none hanging with out support somewhere...

thank you guys but if you read the thread i intend on this one being African cichlids.... in particular lake malawi i have a preliminary stocking list but its keeps going through revisions at this point however i would not want any fish to be in there that would most likely end up a snack LOL..... as for the trade you already know how much i lost on this deal....LOL can not do it again....
