I've noticed that my old 20G is leaking a little around the top...it's over 20 years old so not so shocking...I'm wondering where I could find a replacement tank and perhaps this time try to do a sump... Any suggestions? I don't want to break the bank I'm just playing around with this tank...

buy a tank at BA's then come over and we'll drill your tank at my house. I don't guarantee that it will be in one piece when you leave but so far I'm 6 for 7 :)

Also, you could bring your new tank to the BBQ in may and have it drilled then as a demonstration.

Thanks for the offer but I think that with my limited knowledge I'd do better with a "plug and play" set up. I still have heart palpitations every time I clean my freshwater Eheim filter... LOL

Then what you want to do is contact John at NAFB on kingston road and ask him if he can do what you're asking. He can set you up with something nice. There is also Flavio in the West end of the city in Milton but I don't know if he deals in tanks that small.

Thanks, yes I bought some lights from Flavio he's good to deal with. I'll check it out. How would I find NAFB? Online?

someone has a bunch of 30g drilled for sale in the hardware section.
Thanks but I would prefer to stay with 20G footprint so that I can use my stand & lights... I guess I'll just stay with the tank I have since removing the lid seems to have resolved the salt creep I was getting around the top of the tank.

some 30g are the same footprint, just higher - i'd give them a shout. if they are 30g tall, they are still 24" long.

btw - 30g tall is one of my favorite tanks ever in terms of what you can put in it. and it's way more forgiving than a 20g is... (bigger tank = more stability)

I've got one in my living room :). It needs stronger lights though to reach the bottom. The light I have for the 20G is only a two bulb T5HO and I'd like to try growing some coral. The light was ok for the taller tank but the tank seems to be doing better now that I replaced it with a quad fixture...

the easy way to solve that is by putting lps at the bottom, and sps at the top :) and soft coral will be happy almost anywhere.
