I thought I would pipe in here for a sec. You might want to wait until they are shipping them with the variable controller. Otherwise, they are going to charge you $100 per unit for upgrade with a...

As long as it is an aquarium and not a terrarium, you should not have a problem. May sure you thoroughly clean it with a mild bleach solution. If the tank held water, use a mild muric acid solution...

WTB 75g or equivalent sump

I am looking for a ~75 gal glass or acrylic to use as a sump. Condition does not matter as long as it holds water.

I like the 50 post rule. Too many fly-by-night people on the Internet. (I am not implying you are one of them.) However, it encourages people to engage in the community before selling.
