So what does one do when you have a grave yard of extra tanks, slew of mag pumps, overflows laying around, too much live rock in stock and the desire to do more... So first picture is the basic idea that i doodled at work one day
Attached Image: diagram.jpg
it gives you the basic idea
and these do the rest
specs 33 long(main tank on left) reef/clam tank feeds 30 long on bottom right with a 700 gph cpr overflow goes threw a sock like device than chaeto
and pumped back into 33 long via 950 gph mag
inside 30 long sump is also a 750 gph mag feeding a drilled 40g breeder top right above sump and flows threw a soon to be completed mangrove/live rock/other inhabitants and gravity drains into 33 long via pcv
I am nuts especially when I only had to buy 13$ worth of parts this time

Cool setup

Why are the mangroves in a bucket? I would think having them in a substrate would look nicer unless your planning to move them or something. Where you doing mangroves in the 30B too? Whats going in the main non mudskipper tank and the refuge?

Also, can mudskippers swim? I know they can to a degree, but say the sand sloped to somewhere 2ft deep would they be fine or do you have to keep the water only a couple inches deep?

Hey 2 quick answers

It was a temp thing to have the mangroves in the tub, the mudskipper tank is now a breeder slow moving fuge. They have their own tank and it is similarly setup from my old pics. water level is maybe 4" deep and the rest is sand and rock beach front property! The tank is still a work in progress but the slow moving fuge is going to be pimp I put a glass enclosure above ground, I need more live rock to hide the enclosure better but heres a rough idea of it for now
