    I actually live in o.p. but hey whos measuring.anyways i started saltwater about 3 months ago because a lady was going to literally throw her 20 gallon tall saltwater tank out in the trash so i got it before it was sent to the curb to roast in the sun.It came with 4 red mushrooms,a colony of brown button polyps,lots of astera starfish,orange firefish and a zebra bar goby but he was having issues and passed away bout a month after getting it.Ive added 2 baby clarkii clowns.It was way over crowded with decorations and the light was broken.She was even using a hob filter and crushed coral but that didnt seem out of place to me because i was used to freshwater and i use a hob and crushed coral.After some research i learned what i needed to do to get this tank back right.So i am now building a 40 breeder show tank and the 20 gallon will be off my kitchen counter.lol.

    first pic is the 40b build.
    Second pic is the 20g saltwater sewer box.Ive added a few things since this pic.

    I have any overflow box on 90g. Prob like 40 bucks. It doesn't have bioballs, I replaced them with live rock (which I'll be keeping for my sump.

    I know you've used OP Aquatics before. I swung by there last week and was underwhelmed. I use Coral Logic for almost everything cause they take care of me. Them and Bioreef both have overflow boxes in stock plus much better stocking than OP aquatics

    Yeah he is in the process of a lil remodel and its a fairly new store.
    In my opion he has nice livestock and good lr.
    he is understocked and you have to order alot of stuff be he has helped me so much with all the questions i have had and getting my water to good condition and those other places are a good distance from me.
