Hey guys, I wanted to get your opinion I posted in the other forum about a water cloudiness problem I am having and I am attempting to clear it up. One of my thoughts long term is to get rid of the bio balls in my sump. Please tell me what you think of this:
Remove bio-balls from sump over time.
Remove egg crate that supports bio balls.
Raise water level in the wet dry.
Fill with live rock rubble.
On a separate 10g tank I Am going to put in bulkhead towards the top and use a small pump to pull water from the sump area into the 10 refugium with dsb
and chaeto that will overflow back into the sump when it reaches the top.
My skimmer pump sits in the sump area as does my return pump. What do you think about this setup? The only concern I have is how well that setup will deal with nitrates during the transition as I have a good size bio load.
