The params.....there will be hardly any bio-load due to there not being anything adding any stress to the bio-load, it is going to be coral mainly, I may add the odd Nassarius snail though

well its acrylic so it shoudlt be too bad to drill, the sump will be glass but no drilling is needed on that. As for who.....I will either do it or I will get my dad to do it, so if he breaks it he can buy me a new one :D

if you have the right bits, it isn't too hard, but some practice is needed!

Thats what I mean, I would rather do it with something cheaper/easier becasue if something does go wrong then it can be replaced easily. I have the plans mentally noted down, time to put it down on paper later on tonight
