    Default 1st Time Freshwater Sump Design (feedback, please!)


    0 Not allowed!
    So I've never used a sump before, but am thinking about building and using one with a 125 gallon tank I have planned. (It was that, or dual canister filters)

    I'm just not sure if my volume and "spacing" of things is accurate.

    I made it from a few designs I found offline, but I could have misunderstood some basic concept (like overflow, or something...)
    (The "open space" between the heater & ceramic rings would be different layers of various media... (carbon, purigen, etc.))

    Thanks in advance for ANY feedback!
    (If you think it's complete overkill for a heavily planted and stocked 125 gallon, let me know. It just seemed better than 2 cannister filters...)

    Thank you thank you!

    Thanks, but I already posted there.
    Looking for feedback.
    (Got one persons feedback, but it's a completely different sump all together and not what I'm going for.)

    is this for a marine tank?
    What are you putting on or inbetween the eggcrate where you marked 11cm? Also I would change that course sponge in that section to one that will catch finer particles, or change the eggcrate for fine sponge. The course sponge in the beginning is good. Ad a filter sock to you inlet.
