Ok so I've done my research. I think I'm ready. For now I'm gonna go with the eshopps dual overflow box 1000gph and a mag drive 12 @ 1200gph. I think this will be ok since that gph
isn't including the head of say 4ft. I will buy an extra cheap pump though for those just in case moments.
My next big question is do I use 3/4" return tubing or go with 1"? The return nozzle on the mag12 is 3/4 but the intake on the overflows is 1".
Personally I am thinking on running everything with 1" to make everything easier down below. I am thinking on adding and inline heater and maybe a uv
sterilizer. (with or without its benefits might give it a try). Also where would I put the ATO down there? in the refugium section or the return compartment?
I can buy a bunch of adapters, they are really cheap actually and do it that way. OR am I trying too hard and just stay with the same as the return pumps 3/4"?
Thanks. I feel I have come sooo far in just a few short days, and it's all due to you guys helping me out.
As a side note, anyone wanna snap a picture of their sump/refugium setup? Just so I know what I'm aiming for.
