This is because when power stops that continuous flow overflow does not stop draining when your pump stops.

If you don't believe what people are saying, try cutting power and see if your sump overflows, my guess is it will if its still that high. Dont do this unless you are prepared to clean up the mess it is likely to cause.




Hi I have cut the power to the pump and took a picture of before I cut power and after. This was the one disaster I didnt want because my girlfriend would kill me ha ha. I have a fail safe method and I never have to adjust the return pump.

There isnt much difference in my cut out. I knew what they meant I probably just didnt explain it well.

the green chromis have finally gone into my tank. they went in the other day and they are doing fine. i am going to keep an eye on all the levels and the growth on the rock (i think it is bubble algae that was brought in with rock) then think about adding the 2 black and white clowns. i am also going to start to think about what other fish i want to put in.

The rest of the fish have now went in except my 2 clowns. I have added 2 chalk gobys, a purple firefish which passed away, a biocolour dwarf angel and a foxface rabbit fish. Added the firefish and gobys around 4 weeks ago so have waited to add the 2 latest and everything seems fine now. Only thing is that I am little worried in adding the clowns after the 2 latest but didnt have any in pet shop and liked these 2 latest fish. I do belive the dart died because it had been in tank with a friend for couple of months and the guy said it was ok to split them up. . Just cant decide on minstral or perculia clowns. Thanx for looking and comments welcome. .

Took A chance today and added a couple of frags. Was really surprised because only charged me £12 for 3 polyps and a mushroom. 2 have taken fine but one of the polyps isnt so good. looking now to start my own phytoplankton culture so it doesnt cost me a fortune. I have a random spare cupboard at the top of my stairs that we dont use. Sorry photo is a bit poor.
