40Breeder sump's interior measurements are 35"L x 17.5"W x 15.5"D. = 9493.75 cubic inches available in sump
75 RR Display dimensions are 48"L x 18" x (2" of loss) = 1728 cubic inches of potential flood water
Chamber on the left is for filter sock and skimmer.
Between chamber 1 and 2 is bubble trap. (three baffles)
Middle is return, with two separate pumps. One large for return to display, one small pump to bring water into the fuge at a slow rate.
Between chamber 2 and 3 is a single pane of glass, which will be higher than those on the left to allow fuge to have deeper water than the rest of the sump.
Right chamber is fuge.
I'm thinking the bubble trap glass should be about 10 inches tall by 17 7/16" wide.
Fuge wall on the right will be 17 7/16" wide and 14 1/2" tall.
So, water level should be 10 inches max in chambers one and two... and 14 1/2 inches in chamber three.
Chambers 1 and 2 will be about 9 inches wide, each. Chamber 3 would be about 18 inches wide.
Think I've got enough room for when the pumps shut off? It's getting late and I can't think...
