I would ditch the filters. Are you going Reef, Fish Only (FO), or Fish Only With Live Rock (FOWLR)?

And you will probably want at least a 30 gallon sump, probably bigger. All I can fit under my 46 bow is a 20 gallon high, and think I could use a bigger sump.

Filters become detritus traps, and become nothing more than a headache. You will need a protein skimmer.



Nothing good happens fast in an Aquarium
