Here's my sump from a long time ago. Not a whole lot going on in the fuge at that time, but it's there.



Since then it has more rock, more macroalgae, some critters, and algae growing

EDIT| And my 5 gallon sump on my 10 gallon tank i'm setting up now. Same design and principle only this one has a lot more sand and rock. I really just wanted to show this off, lol

Holy cow you got a lot going on down there lol! I'm sure mine will look like that too eventually. Ok so my sump is going to be made out of a 20 gallon long. So I'd make an extra section for the fuge and then put stuff like Rick and sand in there. Alright I think I can do that lol

I love your sump. I've got a wet/dry now and really want a refugium and a place for my skimmer. Did you make that sump? If so how, as I want mine to be like yours.

here's my refugium on my 125g tank. There's another whole section to the right for the return pump that you cant really see too well. I keep live rock, chaeto and sand in my fuge.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Yep, the R200. Nice and easy setup, even came with the light for the fuge.

I got my sump from ebay.. i think some guy makes them. He does a darn good job. This is similar to the one I bought, but this is the 30 gallon version (mine is 18 and fits perfectly in the cabinet for a 55).

30 Gal Refugium-Sump Wet/Dry Aquarium Filter 30x15x15 | eBay

If I were to do it over again though, I would choose one like carey's for minimal hassle.
