Hey Guys - I'll be moving in 2 months, and I'll be starting up a saltwater tank when I move in. None of this is urget, But its nice to have 2 months to prepare!
I'll be using a 44 Gallon tank, which is basically a 2 foot cube with a corner cut off (diamond shape when you look down at it)
I'm going Sumpless, simply because my DIY stand has no room for a sump.
I have a fluval 304 filter, which I'll re-use and put frags into instead of sponge. (will it clog?)
I was going to go for a HOB
protien skimmer, but started looking around, and saw this:
Clean-Up 200 Protein Skimmer by Won Brothers - AquaCave
Could I adapt this and run it beside my Fluval 304 (In Line) and have my 304 drive this? As well - It doesn't look the most efficient design - But Could I put some frags into this as well to increase the size of my bio filter? Anyone have experience with this unit?
What confuses me: If this is below the waterline of the tank and you are using it "inline" mode... what stops the water from pouring out over the top of this? I'm wondering if this is a bit of BS - Or maybe I just don't understand what "in line" means.
Thanks in advance!
