new 40 breeder finally on stand

Finally, I have my 40 breeder stand built water is in. Now once I get home from Vegas (going to meet the guys on TANKED on friday!) I will be moving my BioCube buddies(2 clowns, royal gramma, blue tang, and snails crabs etc) to the new home.

Sounds exciting! Is TANKED gonna help with soe decor or anything or just meeting them to say you met them? Cool either way I would love to hire them for something. However I doubt they would even try to do what I would want.

If i drew it it'd look like a monkey eating a horsradish on the moon or something

Not enough water volume IMO.
Go as big as you can fit in the stand.
A 20g at least.
You got to figure that when running the sump will only be 1/2 full in most cases,so a 10g would run on 5 g and any evap combined with intake level of return pump make small sumps even harder to manage.
If it won't run for 5-7 days without top off then you are undersized for a 40g.
How is sump configured?
Overflows....

Ok so I just got a phosphate reactor and a protein skimmer. So should I upgrade my sump to a twenty gallon tank or can I use another ten?
