lol glad i can be an example of what not to do

I dont think youd get much benefit from a dsb in the fuge. I beleive it has to do with how big or the size of the dsb section so a tiny part having dsb shouldnt make a dent.

This is all what I was told when setting up my sump.

Unfortunately for me, the thread never garnered much attention (probably owing to the length of my initial post lol). The tank is still sitting in my living room, dry, but that all might change tomorrow . I purchased 150 lbs of live rock from my LFS at a pretty decent price (about 4.50/lb, and supposedly it will have some coraline growth), and I intend on picking it up tomorrow morning.

crap thats alot of rock!!!! we only have 80 in mine. nothing in the sump yet. and ive found it hard to get the rocks right with so much in there. lol i think most of the pictures in this thread are of me trying to make a show aqua scape.

bummer because i was designating as much of the 40g breeder to the fuge as possible.

hind site being what it is, i still dont know why i didnt put one in the dt.


wait! you said much benefit, that means i will get some benefit. and thats better than no benefit.
