So basically I am completely new to the whole sump thing, never head of it until this site.
I have a FW
tank currently 55 gallon. But would someday love to update to a large SW
. However, I want to get all of my research straight.
My biggest issue is understanding sumps...
Is it cheaper to buy a prebuilt sump, or build your own?
What styles of sump are there?
How big does a sump need to be relative to main tank size?
Also if anyone has any links, guides, videos, advice, or step-by-step instructions to build your own sump, I would LOVE to hear it!!!
If anyone can send me information I would greatly appreciate it!
Thanks for helping a fellow hobbyist learn some new tricks
