Hi Guys,

It's been a while since I've posted. Vacation and such... summer things. I am on a budget so I have decided to go with a 55 gallon tank for my first saltwater adventure.

It comes with a stand. Here is my plan....

55 gallon glass tank
20 gal glass tank to be used as sump

My question is.... how do I seperate or divide off my glass tank so that I can have a refugium / in sump skimmer...... or would it be OK if I was to use a hang on the tank refugium and just have the water flow into the sump and get pumped back.....

Here are links to what I am thinking of getting regarding the sump stuff. Please let me know if I am on track.

Lastly... how would I set it up the hose to drain into my glass sump tank... just let it hang there sort of?

Thanks for your time
Adrian
