Hey all, I have been thinking for the past 2 weeks or so on what everyone said about a sump/fuge, I have really taken to the idea the more I read about them. so.... my question is, I have found a great deal from a friend at the LFS
for a tank and stand, but the tank doesn't have an overflow, so I was wondering if I could use a hang on overflow ( I don't care if I show's, im not overly worried about it lol)? something like this?
and if so which one (For a 29gall sump)? the reason I want to do this is because I DO NOT want to drill my own holes, I would rather spend the $$ than risk it....
also, what return pump should I use? so far my thinking for equipment is this
hang on overflow 600 -800 gph
something this this to get the water to the sump/fuge? http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Produc...&N=2004+113794
29gall fuge/sump (I will still need someone to explain to me exactly HOW to do this lol im not the best at DIY and my dad is worse than myself, I was actually hoping my friend could help me, his dad is an engineer and he loves to do DIY kinds of things even though he is not a huge fish person, If I could get the supplies and instructions I think me and my friend could build it... any thoughts?)
what return pumps?
then I was planning on having maybe 2? of the maxi-jet 1200 for the top of the tank and then maybe 2 mini jets 404 for those "nooks" and places stuff might build up like in a corner, so 2 of those of a smaller gph
so I can keep good circulation?
then coralife supperskimmer 125
250 visitherm stealth heater
and lighting...that is yet to be figured out lol
now guy's PLEASE give your input and advice, this is my first tank bigger than 29gallons, and I want this to be done RIGHT, and I need your help!
(would a cute picture of my cousins shiatsu (sp) help for the begging?
) and I am confused on what to get etc so any and all input would be great... thanks
