No I'm saying have it into a box in the corner that would flow over into the fuge, basically put a Tupperware container in the corner and let the fuge be in the same compartment, it doesn't have to PBS perfectly linear to work, this would put the fuge in the same compartment that your overflow runs into but u have to be able to make the plumbing dump into its own compartment, other wise it will disturb the deep sand bed. Look at some of the big DIY sumps, I have seen people use a 55 gallon tank and then put a smaller tank or a short bucket in for where the over flow dumps and then it flows over the top of it into the rest of the sump.

I see. I actually just found a 10 gal diy exactly like that and decided it was the one!

I'm thinking that I'll create the inlet chamber with a length of 3" pvc? Or even a quarter piece sealed in one corner....

Either will work, but just be careful not to restrict the overflow. Good luck on your build

No problem, I am thinking about setting up a nano for the wife, wants some clarkii clowns, what skimmed did you go with, I'm thinking the hydor slim skim, but have heard different opinions on it.

I literally read 3 reviews and bought this... haha! It fit the budget so we'll see.

Coralife Super Skimmer Needle Wheel Protein Skimmers

I got the one that's rated for "up to 65 gallon tanks"

Good to know, that is the one I was looking at and the dimensions listed are smaller, so it won't work for me unfortunately.......they are really good skimmers, seems like everyone loves them
