I am running a Korallin Ca Reactor.
For right now no other reactors.


The following two pics show the sump's layout.

Section 1 shows where the tank water comes in.
Section 2 shows the skimmer area.
Section 3 which looks like the empty area actually measures, 8.5 inches deep x 21 inches long x 14 inches wide. This is where the refugium will go. Still researching the who, what and which materials I will use.




This pic shows the 2 inch wide section (4th section). Here is a good place for filter pads. The ca reactor in front for easy access.
And the 5th section which is of course connected to the pump for uptake to the tank and the ATO switch.
Shining on that empty area is the 65k lamp.

Yea they are.

Hey when you do get your refugium up and running. Get some sort of barrier so that light will not penetrate into the skimmer area or you will encourage life in that area as well. Over time it will be a nuisance. Just my thoughts. Everything looks great man. I am slowly getting ready for my 75 to 180 and watching this makes me more excited! Who makes your sump by the way?
