Yea. Well here it says you must have 3 pipes and 3 holes drilled unlike that video. I think this is the guy who made it.

It was made by a guy on this forum named herbie that's why it's called the herbie method and the method you see on that website is for tank that are over 150 or 200 gallons

Didn't know it came from this forum but that's pretty cool. You know where I can find some nicely illustrated pics of the herbie method I need for my 35 gallon? Also I hear the check valve is pretty much useless cause things can clog it over time and when power cuts off it doesn't fully close back Ans make a slow drain that is hard to notice. I'm just gonna over hang the return line. But as far as 2 pipes for my drain I can deal with that if it makes is quite and most importantly flood safe!

Ok thanks. I've been looking around at some. I just dont really understand how having. The main drain so low wont flood the sump if the power goes out.

The ball valve on the main drain is what keeps the sump from flooding and it makes it quite

A lot of people don't do sumps for tanks under 40 gallons they do hob filters instead

I have a hob penguin power filter on there and I even made a half gallon DIY hang on fuge which I'm not gonna use. I want the stash place for my heater and Skimmer and chaeto algae. Plus the extra water volume. I may upgrade to a 350-400 gph return pump on my sump. Lfs said 10-15x water volume for a return pump and I wad told ob here by someone that 5-10x water volume is ideal for a 10 gallon sump with my size tank so I dunno. I'm just gonna use the one I got and see how she flows.
