The eshopps overflow comes with 1inch bulk head so I used 1inch PVC to sump which slides right into that bulk head and used some flex tube at end of PVC to curve into sump and on retune I used 3/4 inch PVC to connect pump used 1 inch tube and secured it to 3/4 inch PVC goes right around it

Like the flex tube at the end of pipe. If it the eshopps filter has 1inch bulkheads I guess I'll go with that also.

You just have a single overflow pipe? Not herbie?

How do you like your pump? is it an internal or external pump?

does it transfer alot of heat into your system?

Also thinking of upgrading my protein skimmer.

right now i have a HOB Prizm skimmer. Its alright, kinda mad i didnt spend extra $ and get a better one, but i didnt have a sump so needed HOB.

I assumed i would use the HOB skimmer in the sump until i got a sump style skimmer. Does anyone know of a good size/model skimmer for a 29 display w/ 10 gal sump?

Dont want to set up my sump only to realize down the road the sections arnt big enough for the correct skimmer

herbie overflow. its a technique invented by a reefer that uses two overflow pipes with ball valves. this allows to you fine tune the overflow so that it creates a full syphon (sucking no air), this makes an almost silent overflow.

if noise is a concern for you herbie is definitely the way to go

ive been looking at mag 5 pump, just looked at the rio pumps though.

Any pros/cons about either. Ive been reading a lot of ppl seem to say mag drive are really reliable.

hopfully runs cool too, i'm shooting for the most silent tank i can set up
