Isn't  the  skimmer  a  little  over  size  for  a  70  gallon  unless  you  are  considering  some  serious  bioload  for  that  volume.  I  think  that  will  be  the  approximate  volume  of  both  your  displays  put  together.  By  meaning  no  compartment  in  the  sump,  do  you  mean  a  skimmer  section  and  a  return  section  or  the  sump  with  no  baffles  and  the  water  level  controlled  by  a  float?                

 
 Well,  I've  already  got  a  lot  of  fish  with  me  that  has  to  go  in  this  system  and  will  be  adding  a  bunch  more,  so  the  bio  load  is  going  to  be  alot.  Since  I'm  running  bio  pellets,  didn't  want  to  risk  a  bacterial  bloom,  hence  the  over-sized  skimmer.
 
 Yes,  the  water  volume  is  more  or  less  about  70gallons..  The  sump  is  just  a  plain  tank,  with  all  the  equipment  dumped  in,  its  easier  to  work  with  and  i  have  the  space  to  add  more  equipment.

 The  tanks...with  a  slight  problem.  The  Middle  tank,  there  isn't  enough  space.  Was  in  hurry  to  get  the  tanks  and  didn't  think  this  thru  and  the  tank  guy  isn't  willing  to  replace  it  or  cut  the  glass.  So  decided  to  cut  the  front  glass  with  a  Dremel.  
 
 
 
 
 Marked  the  glass..waiting  to  get  the  diamond  bit..

 Hey  be  careful  while  cutting  the  glass.  
 Id  suggest  you  get  a  waste  pane  of  glass  and  practice  on  it  before  working  on  the  main  tank,  if  you  havent  done  it  before.

 Hey  just  a  tip  its  not  easy  getting  a  straight  and  even  cut  with  a  dremel  and  on  glass  it  might  be  a  bigger  problem.  I  would  suggest  using  those  table  saw  type  ones  which  carpenters  use  to  cut  wood.  I  think  I  have  seen  diamond  blades  for  then  in  santacruz  market,  do  you  want  me  to  check  if  they  are  available  ?
 
 Ideally  I  would  suggest  going  to  another  shop  and  asking  them  to  take  apart,  cut  and  reseal  your  aquarium  if  your  regular  guy  isnt  willing  to  do  it
