Might need to try and take a razor blade to it with vinegar. Once I used CLR and a razor blade. I know people don't condone it because of the chemicals. But mine worked out fine. I just made sure I rinsed and rinsed and rinsed it out numerous times. Had no issues

What size of return pump do I need from my sump up, my tank is 72" long 28" tall 18" front to back. Double corner overflows? I haven't plumped anything, my sump tank is 45 gallons. I bought a used tank for my sump to. Its 36" long 12" Front to back and 24" tall. I have yet to put in baffles have been searching this forum and images on internet for ideas, I want dorsal pipe to tread to bulk head ball valve after bulk head then followed by a union then t to one down to my sump. The return is where I need help with. Pump and plumbing please and thank you.

Assuming your overflows are using 1" pipe, that would provide 600gph each. You will need to T them into at least a 1.5" pipe for about 1000gph total. Do you don't want to exceed that number for your return after accounting for headloss. A ball valve can be used in the return line to reduce the return flow so you don't pump your return section dry.

I'm staring to build my sump and do all my plumbing this weekend, in my sump I will have a refug, protein Skimmer, and the media like pads, carbon, phosphate and ect(anything I should or shouldn't put in would be great). I was looking at doing a DIY algae scrubber in my first section of my sump with my Skimmer. Any guidance on the dos and don'ts of the sump would be awesome. I want cheato live sand and live rock in my refug.

Never seen those lights before. If you are thinking about them on your sump, just get a clip on work light and bulb. Cost me 8 bucks to light my fuge.
