new tank questions

I was in pet mart yesterday and Kenny offered me the oceanic tech 120 for a price I could not refuse. I am taking my time getting it all set up as I have my 90 running.I really wanted to put a sump in basement but I have a older home and the hardwood floors are in great shape and they are almost 100 years old so do not really want to drill holes in them.I am looking for reccomdation on a great sump with refuge.I am going to reuse my skimmer it is a MRC-2 and I have no complaints.Thanks in advance for the help,Scott

Look around the basement and see if there are any extra pieces of the hardwood from when the built the house. If there is, its not hard to fix the spots you drill holes.

I have extra wood for mine so did not mind drilling the holes.

Capt ya got it but man I gotta tell you the starfire glass on that thing is so thick and that is very heavy. I can pretty much match the hardwood if I had to but I do got to be honest really do not even have a clue how to do a basemnt sump lol.
Mattowen I will sell the 90 but it will probaly be a month or so before I am ready...Thanks

capt lol I know I will not mind the weight of it when I am done but as I carried it I was saying holy cow. I just am taking my time before I move everything into I want to make sure I have everything set-up as close to perfet as I can.I am even thinking of hooking up a inline U V. If I could win the lottery I would even put the tunze powerheads on it but we will have to see....Scott

yeah I think I got the old lady talked into letting me start the collection of stuff required for an upgrade. So a month is fine, it would be longer than that before I'm ready anyway. Is it 4' long? Drilled? Pics? I see you have some of the 72 in the gallery but none of the 90.

Thanks

You don't have a short length of the hardwood near the tank do you? If so, and there isn't underlayment, you could take up a short whole board, run your return, etc through it and fill with foam, styrofoam, etc. When you move the tank, replace the board....Especially cool if it is hidden behind the tank

Just a thought as I have been thinking about the same thing.
Funny thing I came up with a resolution just in time to have to move

Good luck
