lol because most everyone else is. monkey see monkey do. and this tank will be a mixed reef so if i can help the system along this way i think its worth it. i want to run the biggest fuge i can, i know that much. ive even thought about a simple hob skimmer.

so im back and forth about an in sump, i keep reading its superior to a hob skimmer.

i know im wanting to run an hob skimmer for my 40g sw im planing to put the eel in since it will have no sump.

I've ran my system without one and have been fine.... It's a matter of preference I guess... The pics I attached have the baffles all laid out on the glass, just reference. If I get a skimmer, I'll pit it before the return pump, but I've seen no need for me to get one...

the slots you speak of, are they horizontal or vertical slots for you supply to the sump.

Horizontal and alternating down pipe.... It helps air escape and keeps the flow even.

There is no silence in our house either. It's either the dogs, my bf, or the stupid phone. Also the neighbors kids don't know how to keep it down.

Also terrible with migraines is light.
In general anything that stimulates your senses... Even smells.
Just as a little aside, you might want to check to see if your migraine medications have caffeine.

Caffeine is often used to help treat migraine symptoms. It causes the blood vessels leading to your head to dilate (part of the pain associated with a migraine has to do with those vessels being constricted). It also serves to enhance your body's uptake of the pain meds. So if the medication you're taking doesn't include caffeine, a cup of coffee might help you out a bit. I also get migraines, and the only medication that has worked for me (fioricet) has caffeine.

Just don't overdo it! Bcz then you can get a migraine due to caffeine withdrawal symptoms... I find that a bit ironic lol

Ok, sorry for the hijack. Back to our regularly scheduled programming.

Always had problems with migrane medications. The ones tested on me caused severe depression.

Usualy I just take vicodin or muscle relaxers so I can sleep through the migraines. But not alot.
All the advils and tylenols I've been taking have caused me to have bad heartburn and acid reflux...

Dunno, I have to go to another doc again cuz it's still lingering around this morning.

BTW: I'm addicted to coffein LOL nothing better than a strong hot coffee to start and end your day :b

So coffeewitch, I don't understand your drawing: are you gonna have a separator going along your sump so that the water is making a u-turn at the end? Never seen it like that! Wonder how that will work out
