I would still get a gurgle every couple of minutes. I am thinking of taking that T off and go with one of those %45 Ts, and also upgrade to a larger 11/2" pipe. From looking down at the drain with the cap off, it looks like water is being held up at the T. Not really sure though.

Yeah got it fixed, I opened my drain line from a 1" all the way up to 2". So now there is bottleneck at the bulkhead but by the time the water reach the 2" line that goes to the sump, there is no gurgle and not that much air bubbles as well. I will post pictures tomorrow when I have time to take some.

I went with black moon sand and had to do a few small water changes a day to get it clear and it still took a few days. I think i was doing 10%-20% water changes 3 times a day. I had fish in my tank though. If you dont have anything in there i would do a few 50% water changes. Prob like 2 a day.
