Any feedback on using a wet dry filtration system on a reef tank. I have heard pros and cons about it. Any feedback?

Perfect. That's what I thought. Making a 10 gallon sump this weekend... Thanks!

I have a berlin sump setup on my 90g and a refugium sump on my 125g. Both seem to be working well and they are pretty easy to put together.

How big of a tank are you looking at setting up?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

cool. Just thinking of updating the filtration then? You may have a rough time fitting a skimmer in a 10g sump, do you have a 20g available? That would be ideal in my opinion.

No room for a 20 gallon. Skimmer is a hang on side skimmer.
