Hi all. Finally got my new tank and filled today. Happy got the sump and just now planning on the fishless cycle and what to put in it. It has taken a lot of planning and hours of research but am happy finally set up.

The is no error if there is outage because there is no pump in dt it is free flow so what ever goes in from sump comes back out at other end. I will attach pics. Thanx for looking

What ever comes over the edge falls through and out of back of tank and down tube. If you look in first pic of sump you can see the white pipe. Thanks for looking

Tonight is the night that the cycle was complete so the cuc have entered the tank. I have added one redleg hermit and 1 cleaner shrimp just to get started. Next are pair of black and white clowns on Thursday. Added some red plankton to feed cuc and keep cycle going.

what they were getting at is if your power goes out the pump in your sump will stop working. Meaning your display tank will drain until the water level is exactly even with your overflow that is drilled. When power shuts off on my 125 I have about 5 gallons of water that has to drain into the sump. 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.
