So this is a cruddy Google sketchup of what I am planning. I want more Macro room and less room for the skimmer and return. Hope this shows you guys.

SUMP_PLANS.jpg

We plan on getting the acrylic and cutting it ourselves. He seems confident with that and I will have a little play with it as we can trial and error. That and I will need less baffles this way, and I get 90% of the tank for Macros and Fuge area.

Thoughts and criticisms are more then welcome! :D

Wow see what happens when you get really busy for a few months! Congrats on upgrading to a 40b - I don't see a problem with that fuge design. As they are to increase total volume, and give you a place to grow stuff without being seen in the DT.

What size sump is that? and which skimmer are you going with?

Forgive me if those questions have already been answered I'm not going to read 50 pages of text to find it :P

No problem, it is going to be a 40B over a 40B SUMP. The skimmer is a PS160 from Aquatraders and has a footprint of 10x12, right now it is running as a HOB. End of this week, I should have the stand done and the new tank we will be moving things too. A will get the black Acrylic and we will go from there.


OR! I can put the return in the opposite corner from the skimmer/line from the tank overflow. I think I like that better! On to sketchup I go!


Love your tank!

He is the coolest little guy! I adore him!

Thanks Spiro and Banshee I am essited too!

Here is the other concept, would give me even more room and I would only need to cut 4 pieces of acrylic.

This is going to have the back painted black and the baffles will be made of Black Acrylic as well.

Display Fuge/Sump FTW!

I have a powerhead/pump. Too bad you're not closer! I don't know if I'll ever have a use for it! You inspired me to download Sketchup. Can't wait to play with it! :D

Yeah I was like Trog is back!

I know! But hey I think I can get away with just one in there at the front as I will have the return flow from the Mag 7 diverted there to control my flow. ;) So much to plan!

arent you like a vet or something randi?.... why does my cat fart when she bends over to drink water from the faucet? haha sorry...random...also randi

With your return pump, remember you have to account for the volume of water it takes for the pump to pump up for the drain to start draining, just remember you dont wanna run your pump dry

Ummmmm....... :huh: Don't you get gassy on occasion? :P No it's from her food, what are you feeding her? Also I am a Vet Tech, so basically the person who doe all the medical procedures etc other then surgery. Doctors are lazy. :P

Yeah I am considering it all, I plan on having the t valve there to help adjust the flow etc, I have a 600GPH overflow box and a Mag7 for the return, I just want to keep it at about 400GPH total flow through the filter, so control is a must.

I will probably have to adjust the box around the return pump, ATO will be there as well......

As always you make me think more! Any faults you see in the design though? ;)

:lol: :lol:



Same thing I thought!

I see no faults, other then enlarging the return chamber by an inch or three. this will atleast give room around the pump so air bubbles from falling over the baffle wont get shot upto the display, and will also give room for the ato, that little return chamber is the only place youll see your evap...in otherwords maintaining water level there is pertinent otherwise you evap and burn a pump :\


haha yea probably the food...it was just funny cause it only happens when she sticks her ass straight in the air....lol kitty queef

OK! :happy: I planned on making it a bit larger, Sketchup is not a true to life just a visual aide for me. Gotcha on the evap, I always figured it was that one that needs watching as it's the only one water is being actively pumped out of. That and all the reading I have been doing.

OMG made me start humming the Queef Free song from SouthPark! :lol:

Do you see the problem with this?

There once was a blind girl who hated herself just because she was blind.
She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. She said that if she could see the world, she would marry him.
One day, someone anonymously donated a pair of eyes to her.
When the bandages came off, her boyfriend got down on one knee and asked her,
�Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?�
The girl was shocked when she saw that he was blind. She refused to marry him because of this.
Her boyfriend walked away in tears, and later wrote a letter to her saying:
�Take care of your eyes my dear, they were mine before they were yours.�

It's a Facebook group I liked, and it doesn't make sense. How could the boyfriend walk away in tears if he had no eyes? :huh:
