    I have both my drain lines going into the same section of the sump (first compartment). Skimmer stays on all the time. I still get a very good population of pods all the time in the sump and DT

    Both approaches work well, I just set up mine like I did to make things a little easier to set-up.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    How much do you run (after head loss) It sure does complicate my sump design, but I read ALOT about the benefits of return in middle
