Thread: Help with Sump

  1. Default Help with Sump


    0 Not allowed!
    Hey guys and gals,

    I haven't been here for a while. I've moved my ~300 liter tank to our new office and now want to set-up it with a sump.

    What size would you recommend? Will 10% of the size be ok?
    I'm not going to drill the tank, just because I don't want to. I'll install a siphon overflows (similar to the CPR).

    How many chambers for the sump would you recommend? 3 or more?
    Would a refugium be of advantage? Possibly keeping shrimp in it.
    What can I do to keep the mosquitoes from breeding in the sump, besides putting a lid on it?

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    I have a 55 gal tank that I am going to use for a sump for my 125 gal the first chamber will be for the water from the main tank going into sump and it will house any kind of equipment like heaters and what not's. Next chamber will be for biological filtration, and the next chamber will be planted and last chamber will be the outlet from sump to main tank.

    sump volume should be about 1/3 of the display tank volume. easiest and cheapest sump to build would be a wet/dry trickle plastic drawer system. mosquitos shouldn't breed in the sump because there will always be water flow through it.
    Thar she blows!!!
