    75 Gal. Upgrade

    I am trying to upgrade to a 75 gal. from my current 30 gal. I am looking at an All-Glass 75 gal. with Megaflow predrilled overflows. I want to do this on a very limited budget to start as lighting will be my first exspense. I would like to use my 30 gal. as a sump and re-use my current HOT filter (Marineland 350 dual bio-wheel) and HOT protien skimmer (Red Sea Prizim). I have a detailed excel diagram but I can not attach it here for veiwing for some reason. You can email me directly to see the plans. My email address is - . I would appreciate any help or recommendations. Thanks

    how long is the 75? if its 48" i say 4xT5HO would be good, keep lighting cost under 200 dollars

    I dunno if the prizm is strong enough for a 75+sump, u might look into that?

    good luck with it!

    The skimmer should be your second upgrade. The prizim is not bad on a 30-40g tank but it did do well on my 65 without a sump. To keep the costs down for the skimmer try acrylic city. I know harley had done good work at good prices, I can't comment on the new guy.
