Using an Eclipse 6g as a fuge for a JBJ 28G HQI

I'm in the midst of setting up the 28g HQI and 1/15 HP chiller. Had to buy an extra pump for the chiller. Should the chiller plumbing be separate from the Fuge setup? I'm guessing that they should be separate but not sure. Is it necessary to have two pumps for the fuge if it is lower than the main tank?

Thanks for the help...

you might as well just have the chiller draw from the fuge and go back up to the main tank... since gravity will be what is feeding the fuge anyway... you may want some power heads in your tank for more flow though

Sounds like a good idea to pump the fuge output through the chiller and into the back of the NC28, but how do you think the 'gravity' method is going to work? Put a HOB and put a hole in it or something else?

 

Put the rocks and water in last night and fired it up...righteous!

 

I think I'll start a tank page in the members area...
