Few build questions

    We are thinking of making the jump to larger tank (< 100 gal) and I was wondering the technicalities of running it.

    How do you filter it? Heat it? etc ?

    Uhm... that really kind of depends on what you're planning to keep in it.

    If I were doing a 100 gal tank, I'd run dual canisters, one on each end, OR make a DIY sump filter using a small tank as an algae scrubber and a second small tank for mechanical and chemical filtration. For heaters, you want 5 watts per gallon, I'd run dual heaters as well, one by each canister or one on each side of the back wall.
