    Sump/Refugium Help Please!!!!

    I have a 30g fugesump under my 100g....and sometimes think it's barely adequate. I don't think there's a hard and fast ratio to follow with these things, but the bigger the better, no doubt! Remember, you're only using PART of the 30g for the refugium, so it's now an even smaller %. I bought...

    new refuge

    that's exactly what I did with my sump. I made the sump out of a 20g long tank, so I had plenty of room for a refugium from almost half the length of the sump. (I divided off the sections with plexi and silicone) I had the 2nd to last section for the return and the last section was the...

    In-Wall tank?

    have some questions on your in-wall: how bout when the sand on the hallway side gets nasty against the do you clean it from the other side? (I'm thinking of leaving the hole tall enough to show only about a half inch of sand.) canopy: did you have to cut the backside of the canopy...

    Anti-siphon Hole for return

    yep. so you drill it just under the water line. BEFORE you drill it though, do a recreation of the power outage: before your refugium fills up, look on the return plumbing to see where you need to drill it. hth, John

    How close is too close??

    PLUM, (or anyone else!) I like your setup.....I just got 2 175w mh setups....I have a diy canopy like yours too. mine does not have a back....should i cut a hole in the back and stick a fan in the canopy like you have? bulb is about 6 or 7" from water. I have one light installed in there now...
