Welcome to the forum.
Like all of us did when we first started, and it is still true today, you have a lot of reading to do.
And since this site has changed and I have no clue where anything is, you may need someone else to tell you... Onefish, Pasfur? Here's what i can give you though For Lighting.
Thank you. I will draw up a plan for every body to get a better idea of what i'm goin for. I'm sure nuclear greens Zoanthids ( I think thats what they are called)
Read this: Understanding Sumps. It will help you gain a little knowledge as to how they work.
Thank you i don't know if i will use a type of pump he sugested i think i will have a low power pump to draw the water out of my main tank. So if i experience a power outage i won't end up in a flood. I think I will want an inlet area, an area to grow micro algea, and an outlet area. Thank you. Now just to get those drawings done.
I don't think that having a pump pulling water from your display tank is a good idea. This could easily cause a flood as there is no way to match the gph rating between the two pumps. Even if one pump is at 1 GPH higher than the other, over the course of eight hours or so, a flood would be inevitable. You have to use some kind of overflow system for the display, such as drilling the tank, or a siphon overflow.
You could use a CPR overflow prefilter, such as the one in this link. In this one, if the power goes out, the air-lifter will re-start the siphon.
if i were goin to drill the tank will it crack? And which desigh should i use
I'm hoping that Onefish can help here as he has experience with drilling tanks. I personally only have experience with either pre-drilled tanks or with the Continuous Siphon Overflow I liked in the above post.
I have read in the Encyclopedia of Aquarium Fish by Dick Mills, that for a salt water tank that every 50 sq. inches of waters serfice you can add 1 inch of fish. So by my calculations a ten gallon tank has around 200 sq. inches of waters surfice ( 20" * 10") that my tank could hold 2 neon gobs not including the sump is this true? Please vioce opinions . drawings are about done.
