Alright this is probably going to take a few posts so ill start with the sump and some of the basics...
The tank is a 75G custom acrylic with overflow. The sump is a approx 30G with 3 compartments. First compartment contains 18watt uv
sterilizer ($65 eBay) and eshopps psk125 protien skimmer ($95 LFS
). Second compartment is my fuge, I have a clip on light I picked up at the hardware store running a 5000k bulb to support my cheato growth. There is 3-4inches of live sand and an inch or two of miracle mud. As the water flows into the the return compartment (3rd) it flows through 2 bags of chemipure elite and is pumped back by my 800GPH return pump (eBay $40).
My sump contains a handful of various snails an is a great place to grow pods
I also have the grow light set to a reverse night cycle to keep my tank PH balanced.
