That's what I said and how I have always done my tanks. He has a reef tank, but hes in florida so who knows how there doing it over there. I know the sump can handle the back flow without the check valve but he was helping me with the build and I got the "dad you never listen just try it my way" so I gave in (like I have never done this before the kid thinks he knows better than the old man). I told my wife im taking it out the minute the salt water messes it up. In return for being nice as my wife puts it she bought me an Apex so I cant complain lol.

As of right now the canopy is about 6 inches bigger than the tank so there is a 3 inch gap on either side so far the humidity in the canopy is the same as in the room but I was planning on cutting out a hole on either side of the canopy and placing a fan inside on one end and having the other serve as a out going vent opening. What do you guys think, should I do it anyway?
