my new 135 gallon tank
I picked up a used 135 gallon tank this weekend. I moved my goldfish into it
so now they have plenty of room to move around. I have two orandas, two lionheads, one pearlscale, and one panda moor.
The tank came with a 25 gallon sump wet/dry filter and I know very little about sumps. It has an overflow box which drains with a 1 1/4" flexible hose and runs down to the wet/dry portion which has a layer of floss and then about 10" of bioballs. The sump itself has three separate compartments, each being 12"x12". Each box overflows into the next. I have a Rio 2500 submersible pump in the third compartment, which should be pumping about 500 gallons an hour with 4' of head. So I have two unused portions of the sump.... any suggestions as to what I can put in them? I'm really excited about this filter, just wanting to know how to set it up to get the most out of it. I like the fact that I have an extra 20 gallons of water.
I also pulled my Eheim Classic 2217 from my old goldfish tank and put it on this new one.

I wonder if you posted this in the "Technical" section of the forum, maybe it would get the attention of somebody who knows about this type of filter. I wish I could help you, but I have only ever had cannisters and hang on backs. Good luck with this new setup.

Sounds like a great tank. Plenty big for your goldfish
