    tank plumbing

    Is it possible to remove the tank plumbing guards { black baffles in tank } and surround with actual live rock to give more space and a direct flow behind my rock wall . I know i will need to sock the intakes to protect fish but can it be done without harming the environment or plumbing it self ! PS> thanks for any advice

    Its not that it won't work, its that your entire tank will drain with a power outage.

    I wish I could give you a more solid answer but the probability is your tank will definitely drain out. Agree with most of the replies here.
