i am trying maximize the filtration in my ap12 and noticed the chambers have a bottom in them rather than reaching the base of the tank.

is this all dead space under the chambers?

anyone ever thought about cutting this out? it would be much easier to add a skimmer in #2+3 if there was no bottom in them...

 

let me hear your thoughts on this one everybody!

If you cut those out they will all connect right to chamber 4. I would not suggest it unless you are then going to block off all 3 of those areas with longer pieces of plastic so they reach the bottom. I personally wanted to close off the entire bottom area connected to chamber 4 so that I would not accumulate crap in there and build a nitrate factory, but decided against it and figured I would keep it simple and just pump vac it out every month.
