    he he.. beautiful tanks.
    I would definitely go with the thicker 19mm starphire if you plan on having it rimless.. for the added strenght.

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

    I'll be sticking with the standard 90g!

    -This weekend the stand will be completed
    -The sump will be tested for leaks
    -The Canopy will be finished (48x18x16)
    -My lighting came in yesterday, if I have time I'll wire it up

    Next purchase items:
    -Portein Skimmer
    -Return pump
    -PVC
    -Power Heads in question? Couple of 750, 850 or 1250GPH ???

    A few pictures. The stand is drying waiting for it's 3rd coat.


    The sump during the build.
    Will post final product later.

    Small tank seen hidden in the back will have a 70w MH hanging over it somewhere in the condo at some point in time.

    i really like my hydor K4's. they have great flow ( 1200 gph ), good distribution, low wattage ( 8W ), are small....ish and come with a really good magnet / suction mount.

    if you're looking for a little more their magnum line goes all the way up to 3250 gph ( 19W :b13: ) but they also get a lot bigger.

    i am also very happy with the seio 1500 i have, both are great simple power heads IMO.


    what are you planning on keeping?? ( this will give a better idea of how much you need )

    vortechs mp40w's :b7: are great too.. but a little more on hydro.. ~29watts each.
    they are also quite pricy.. but so far I can't say anything bad about them.. other then cost.

    that stand is looking mighty nice bud!! keep up the good work :b16:

    I'm planning on keeping SPS, LPS maybe a nem.

    The Vortechs are a little out of budget for now...
    Are the Coralvue's any good? CoralVue High Seas 102B 1,250 gph

    there you go, and add another larger one and you'd be all set for SPS, etc...

    i have never used ( or even seen till now ) the coralvue one, they look like a copy of the ones from hydor, as for quality .......... don't know.
