Was looking to get one but can’t find the specs on the rear filtration compartment size. Not sure why they wouldn’t include this info in the specs. Want to know what I can/ can’t fit in it. Anyone have this tank or know where I might be able to find this info?

Well right after I started this thread Planet Aquariums responded to my email from the other day. With this diagram. Noting that their tanks are hand made and the dimensions can vary slightly. Hope this helps someone else.

I just picked one of these up today. Looks to be pretty good. I paid 599 for it.
Nice. Would you mind checking the front to back dimension of the rear chamber? On the diagram PA sent me shows it to be 3-1/2” clear is that correct? Trying to see what skimmer I can fit in it. What’s you plan for skimmer?

It is indeed at 3.5 or just a hair under for clearance in all rear chambers. I am looking at Eheim skim 350 as it appears it should fit. It says its good up to 92 gallons. I am very new to this so my build is going to go extremely slow. I have a ton of learning to do.

That is a surface skimmer. What you need is a Protien Skimmer, such as this one.

That is probably the only one that will work with this tank. If only they had them available. I also thought of going with a small backpack and having the inlet and outlet piping sitting in one chamber. Anyone ever tried that?

What other filtration would I require. There are two filter socks in the middle chambers. Should anything be placed in these filter socks? Probably a silly question.

You can do that but it’s not very visually appealing and it adds the possibility of a leak outside the tank. Both of those kind of go against why you get an AIO tank in the first place.

I don’t like socks personally. Since this is a newer tank you won’t have pre-made options for alternatives but I’d look into getting floss holders or filter cups custom 3d printed to replace the socks.

Was mainly looking for info on the tank itself not to start a build thread. I will be picking up the tank on Thursday from my lfs and will update once I get it up and running. I will be using it to transfer most of the contents of my old 90 gallon tank.
