I am wanting to phase out the wet/dry I am currently using and replace it with a 20 gal
glass tank. Main purpose is to put more water in the system and to allow me to do water changes without disturbing the water in the tank.
I have a 75 gal
with about 80 lbs of LR
. I know I could use more but I am planning on getting some more LR
for this tank and the 29 gal
I am starting. I have a MAG7 pump as the return pump and a MAG5 for the Berlin classic skimmer.
My main question is about the skimmer. I planned on putting the skimmer in the sump but the skimmer returns are so high up and I don't want to hear water running all the time. I would like to have about 15 gal
in the 20 gal
tank most of the time depending on evaporation. Any ideas for this? I don't believe the tubes can be under water ...
Also, from what I read, I can get glass sheets cut to make a 3 wall baffle. Is this the best easiest way to prevent micro bubbles?
I am going to start taking the bioballs out of the wet/dry. I cycled the tank with 45 lbs of LR
(fiji) and 5 lbs of base rock. I later added 30lbs FL LR
. I also have a 4" DSB
that I seeded with 10 lbs of LS
. Should I take about 1/3 out every week or can I do it faster. I have 2 damsels, a percula clown, CBS, 15 hermits, 7 snails and 6 hitchhiker clams.
