    Water Circulation Question

    I have read that you need to pump 10-15 times per hour the gallon size of your tank. Say I had a 180 gallon tank. I'm aiming for 10X that per hour. So I need 1800 GPH. If my return pump flows at 1400 GPH and I had a powerhead in the tank that flowed 400 GPH then I get 1800. I know that the...

    skimmer placement in sump

    I'm slowly stocking up on equipment before buying a tank. I just bought a sump that has a small intake area that leads into a larger fuge area. From there it goes into a medium size return area that could hold the skimmer and return pump. After reading up a little more I agree with others that...
