  9. DIY in wall 75g reef tank

    I would prefer a HOB skimmer but I am open to the type that can sit outside the tank skim, Does anyone use an outside the tank skimmer? Found a good way to silence my MAG7 pump using some braieded tubing cut in half. http://i.imgur.com/CCMbt76.jpg Here is are a couple options I am considering for aquascaping. Which do you like 1 or 2? #1 http://i.imgur.com/MfnPm3d.jpg #2 http://i.imgur.com/VIa21FT.jpg
  10. Setting up New 20 Gal tank

    Hello and Welcome! My suggestion is to look around online at pics and layouts of other peoples sump designs. Here is a good overview of sumps and how to make a 20 long into a sump http://www.melevsreef.com/articles/make-sump-using-20g-long You can check out my 29 gal tank I was gonna build. It had a 10gal sump but same basic concept applies to all sump/refugs Also my 75 gal in wall sump design uses a 20 gal tall if you want to see how I setup that sump. to date this is my favorite sump I have built. I would go for a return pump that is 10x your tank volume ...so I would use a 200 gph return for a 20 gal tank (You will have head loss from pushing the water back into the main tank) I would use a 3/4" or 1" bulk head ...buy them at http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/ Great place for online purchases Hard plumb or soft whichever fits your needs. I like hard plumbing with pvc unions to allow for easy maintenance. lot of info....so basically go get some glass or acrylic and start building your sump! Remember it is okay to mess up or do something wrong this is how we learn and gain experience. -Rich
