My plan is very similar. I'm turning my 55 (48x12x20) into a planted fuge. I plan on about 40 lbs LR
, 100lbs LS
, and lots of nitrifying plants. I also an going to keep my existing pod pile in it. Its going to be next to my 120 gallon, L-shaped set-up, with the 55 slightly taller than the 120. I'm just going to have a siphon set up with a pvc
just above the pod pile, and draining directly to the 120 display.
In my sump, i'm going to grow the macro, caulerpa and such. The sump will flow into the fuge, fuge into display, display into sump. Any opinions?
