lol glad the aggressive responses aren't gone after 117 pages
Lol true, I would also like to see him pull it off any nicer and cheaper than fijicube, at that price you pretty much cant for a rimless tank
What’s wrong with saying I’d just build one. I already have a 20 long so just buying a sicce pump and a piece of black acrylic and some silicone would be the exact same thing
no it wont, rimless are much more expensive, and the tank is professionally done, it harder to silicone these things well

And I get crashing flow off it, if I have the 250gph powerhead then the 125gph pump I get a total of 375 gph in random flow which is good for the corals

I’d rather have a tank that looks like a pile of junk but has cool stuff inside then a ada 99999999$ invisible glass floating rimless tank with a goldfish and rainbow trash gravel

i said to make it yourself, rimless is more expensive. The advantage over fluval was the bigger pump and more importantly the larger tank size

Idk if I should get dry rock or live rock, I was also toying with live rubble because I want fish that like rubble (a clingfish a jawfish and a sail fin blenny)

Boy, you have a lot to learn about sw aquariums. You are also rude to the point of nasty with some of your comments

Also, @Sharkbait19 did u upgrade ur flow, the pump in the fluval evo sucks and u need a powerhead or a better pump. It only does like 125 gph
I upgraded the filter to the InTank Baskets, best decision I ever made to the tank. It made the water incredibly clear and the corals are thriving with it.
I never upgraded my pump, I plan on (and keep putting off) 3D printing random flow generators instead of the duckbills. In a tank so small I never found a need for a powerhead because the stock filtration was more than powerful enough for most purposes.

There are a lot of good macro builds out there for this tank, you won’t be disappointed if you get it.

Good fish options are occelaris or percs, grammas, firefish, gobies, cardinals, and coral croucher gobies (cousin to lionfish). All will get along within reason (especially if you don’t get a clown pair, which you have already stated you don’t want).

Sharkbait runs the tank though, how many fish do you think is reasonable?
Anywhere from 2-5 depending on species, tank maturity, and maintenance (5 is if you are looking at only small gobies, and that is pushing it due to aggression) I think is fine. 3-4 is best.
I’m planning on 4:
2 clowns
Tiger Shrimp-goby (likely Randall, still looking for one) pair
Some fourth thing (front runners are neon goby, green tiger goby, cardinal, or firefish)

And however much corals I can squeeze in lol.
