Okay, so after several plumbing issues and gurggling issues with my sump and overflow (it was man made poorly - bought it used), I've decided to ditch the sump idea. I bought everything used and can probably sell it all to make my money back. I've thought about it for a long time and after going back and forth about it - I've decided to just run without a sump (I know a lot of you will probably disagree, but I just had bad experiences over the past couple weeks - I'm sure its rare but I'm fed up with it).
Anyway, with a 110gal 48x18x30 - assuming I end up with about 160lbs of lr
and a deep sand bed - what do I need for filtration without a sump? Can I just go with two good powerheads and a AquaC Ramora Pro HOB
with a preskimmer running carbon? I won't need any additional mechanical filtration, will I?
came last week and I have two 300w heaters. I've got 50 lbs of base rock so far and I'm waiting for my HD
to get sand in (was told within 2 weeks). Anything else I'm forgetting to get this thing running? I want to do this right.
Also, if you think I'm crazy for ditching the sump idea. Let me know.
