Mujtba, I don't know if this has already been mentioned already, I just skimmed through the replies and didn't read the entire thing. You can get a hang-on-back refugium that pumps water from your tank to the fuge then gravity feeds back into the tank. Then if the pump breaks the water won't overflow.

Looks great! Did you drill the bottom of the tank? I want an overflow box like the CPR ones that hang on the back so I don't have to drill the tank.
O and A lot of Power heads help a lot i have one in each corner and middle i have 5. And your gonna nead a powerful filter. Because My Canister is rated for hundred something gallons almost 200 but i got it for very cheap at *************.com around 100
A canister filter is basicly sucks water from the tank brings it down to a canister and it well you know cleans it then there is a pump thats its top that pumps it back to the tank. And how much lr do you have?
Hmmmm.. Well I guess 85 is good but i would go a little more near 100 because since there is no sump and fuge for bacteria your bacteria grows on the live rocks thats why You would need a lot more. and i Have 35 lb's of live sand, what you have is perfect.
thanx.. i guess i will try to get to 100lbs. i know my playsand soon will become LS, so that will help out too.
i bought base rock from some guy on ---- but he conned me.. im tryn to get my money back.. his name is ihaverock. dont get from him..
ya im tryin to get money back...
salti, do you have your rock against your back glass, or did you put it all evenly on the tank floor?
i have my rocks piled on each other towards the back side, allowing the front 5-6inch open for fish to swim...
it seems your rock is all over the place.. how did u do it?
when i get corals, do they need a more leveled place, or would they fall off my pile of rocks?
Oh, I see now, it is a surface skimmer for your bakpak. I made one for my bakpak too out of a plastic water bottle. But I want to make an overflow like the CPR ones that siphon water out of the tank and goes down to a sump for filtration.
