    Holes in my Tank

    I am as green as they come and just bought a used tank/cabinet/canopy. The tank is 72x23x18 and the canopy/cabinet is a Geometrik 72x26. I Payed 300 for all of it. The tank doesn't really fit the stand, but it came with a neat styrofoam background to fill the gap. Anyway, I have two questions.
    1. Was this a great deal?
    2. My tank has three holes drilled in the bottom of it, and a bunch of square 1/2" pieces of glass all around used to hold something off of the bottom of the tank. What would be the best way to put these to work? Is there supposed to be a bottom filter thingy with this?
    OK, sorry three questions...
    Please Help!

    Welcome Arty Morty
    you got a good deal.
    the holes on the bottom are the ins and outs for your sump system. for the fittings, ask IJO for the prices.

    more people will reply to you shortly.

    anybody got some pics of there bare tanks.. to give him an idea.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    Thank you Liv. I am sorry though, I cant seem to access the reef lounge forum to see what IJO stands for :P (they have a acronym sticky)
    But yes, I would love to see some pictures of some setups.

    IJO is the name of someone online and the owner/administrator of this site. He also runs a store in the Ottawa area.

    No problem. I'm fairly new as well and found this to be a great site to learn from. Others out there are less hospitable towards us newbies and you find yourself getting slammed all the time for asking what many think to be simple questions.
    Luckily that is not the case here.

    I will offer this one piece of advice though. Go through older posts. You'll find a wealth of information in there and it'll help fill in some of the gaps. Of course most of that will lead to more questions.

    Welcome to the site.

    I should clarify, by "others" I wasn't refering to people here. I meant other sites. Just wanted to throw that in there before I prove myself wrong and upset everyone.

    Welcome Arty Morty
    You will definetly find great info here, no question. But I think that you need a base of knowledge from which to work. You cannot go wrong by getting yourself a few good books on reef keeping. They will be well worth the investment. There are many good ones out there these days, just make sure they are current.
    Enjoy this new experience!
