Hey guys, After recently moving from 42 Wallaby Way to our new home we decided to build a 'small' saltwater aquarium to learn a little about science and keep a clownfish or two. I have never had an aquarium before so this is my first attempt to recreate about 2 cubic feet of the south Pacific in our living room. I will say that while the process has been slower and more complex than I anticipated it has been one of the most fascinating endeavors I have attempted. I have had so much fun designing my system, exploring the science, and learning from others. I hope to be able to share my experiences and help others. Specs: - Tank: ADA 60P. (60cm x 30cm x 36cm; 60L or 15.9 Gal) drilled for Ghost Overflow. On ADA Garden Mat. - Sump: Synergy Reef CL-22 Sump (22" x 15" x 15"; 15 Gal) in Red/White cross laminate.
