You can use "hang on back" overflow box similar to the one pictured here to get the water to your sump . For return, you simply get a return pump and plump a simple system back.
This was a makeshift sump I used to extra volume to an overloaded qt tank. Ignore the garbage can, your would use a wet/dry or another tank for your sump. I show the pic, just to illustrate the overflow box.

thanks for the advice and helpful pictures. how exactly does the overflow system work? what is better, bioballs or bubbles? what is a refugium and do i need one? what is the minimum tank size needed for my sump??
thanks in advance.


p.s. the 35 gal is running great so far. i only have one false perc, a purple tipped anemone, 5 hermits, 5 -1 = 4 snails (hermit got one), 1 blood shrimp, 1 cleaner shrimp, 15#s lr, shrooms.

I was just looking to upgrade one of my setups. And the tanks had a sticker on the bottom pane that said "tempered"

A lot of ripples make a wave
