    Sump+refugium.

    I think I have the lighting thing figured out,lots of watts to heck with the power bill,now a sump/refugium question?I can get 33g aquariums for really cheap,around $10 a piece,can I use this size for a combination of 1 for sump and 1 for refugium or do I need more gallons of extra H2O.

    135g=65"L/24"W/20"L an unusual size but it's a nice size.

    You could make a really nice setup with those two tanks. Have both tanks drilled, so you can have the refuge flow into the sump return. Make sure you take pics when you set it up.
