Thanx everyone yea I always loved breeder tanks as they have that extra width for a small setup. Im waiting on the lights to come in going to be running 6 x 39W T-5s across the top Im still not sure if im going to drill this tank or just HOB to the sump. If anyone has a HOB overflow for sale im looking for one

Tank
36L x 18W x 18H

Sump
30L x 12W x 12H

Its still in progress I ordered 6 x 39W T-5 setup lighting system should be here next week. Also ordered the Overflow box going with Anthony Calfo style. I was looking at Bean's setup
Silent and Failsafe Overflow System http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=1310585
similar to this kind I'll only have two drains though no emergency drain

Will be working on the sump setup this week still unsure of the setup I was looking to running a fuge in a 20L

30L X 12H x 12W

I wanna make sure I have spacing for a Euro Reef style skimmer

Possible skimmer Im looking at Reef Octopus Extreme 160

Diamentions
Height: 23"
Body Diameter: 6.4"
Footprint: 8" X 10"

This might be the best solution for performace and space wise for me.
