There seem to be one good review of them for every 1000
there is a specific way to break the siphon? That's what scares me the most. The entire contents of the tank spilling onto the floor. :-/
With a drilled overflow, no. With a HOB overflow, yes. That is why I am saying go with a drilled overflow tank
As far as what tank, if you need to stay with a 3' long tank, then yes, definitely a 65. If you go to a 4' long, then go with a 75 or 90 (same footprint, 90 is taller).
Edit: There is a big difference in that one foot extra for the smaller Tangs, if you had any desire (or do you already have one)? The 3' length is pretty restrictive as far as big swimmers IMO.
You drill 2 small holes in your return lines below the water level in your tank. The returns and drilled holes will be in the display. You keep your water level in the sump low enough so that when the power goes off the siphon breaks before the water overflows the sump.
No, I think I'm fine with no tangs. I like my 54 corner. I just know people enjoy the dimensions of a 40 breeder so that's my thinking on that one. My lighting will also work on the 36 inch. It just makes sense to have a sump from everything I read.
John may have caught what you were trying to say. I thought you were referring to restarting a siphon, vs. breaking one after you shut a pump off. In addition to what John said, you can also place the return jets high in the tank so that even if the siphon didn't break, only so much water could siphon. Once you get this figured out, it can really be made fool proof.
Perfect, than 65 it is ;D
ok, thx! I'm sure it will make sense when I actually see it and can see it in process. I seem to be able to figure out things most times I'm kind of excited actually now that you all have helped with the spillage fear lol
oh, and websites and everything! thx all!

this is what I want correct? Hope I posted that right...
As far as the tank size, and being reef ready, yes. As far as the actual tank/manufacturer, someone else will need to chime in as I have never had one of their tanks.
But that is exactly what we are talking about
