    i never said my stand is to small
    the stand is the type you buy every day
    the moduals would be shorter than a complete sump/refuigium/frag tanks ect. them pieced toghter from soft clear tubing or pvc pipe. what ever simple

    my stand is a commercial aga pine stand 3 doors you cant fit any of the permade sumps/refuigiums in there after the tank is full that are big enought for the tank. after its full later down the road.

    same with smaller pine or wood cabinets. so unless you empty the tank to put a 30 or 40 long tank in there or what every size you need. your options are limited. it has nothing to do with changing out the baffling sections, its addind a new additional feature like i said in my origanal post. first a sump just for the skimmer and filter sock. the you could add a refuigium down the road and so on.
    .buy what you want and and on or change when you want simple. as for cost thats up to eshopps. so maybe you are picturing it a little wrong. eshopps thought it was a very intresting idea. im sure they can make a great system if they want. after all this is a dream sump tread from eshopps and i hope the offer it. inovation is wonderful.
    also i bought my stand from a store to avoid desin flaws
    lol :beer:

    ah, totally seperate units altogether. i get it now, i thought you meant modules that went into an existing frame. hence why i figured you'd have height issues.

    having individual acrylic chambers with some method of carrying the water properly when connected together would be kind of interesting, and as you said innovative.

    i think modules would be a great idea. i have the rs75 on my 55 for now, but i will definitely upgrade the tank in the future. it would be nice to know i could just add another module or two to get the same results for a larger tank. cost effective and upgradeable!

    I just wanted to comment that I'm pretty disappointing you didn't make a 18" version. A 18"W x 12"D x 16"H sump w/ refugium would be a dream but instead I have to build one myself. I'm truly surprised you didn't release one since you have a RS-75, a R-75 would be amazing. I'm contemplating buying a RS-75 but I really want a refugium so building one is my only option at this point if I want a refugium.
