fuge Question

I was curious about the return and pumping out from a fuge. Will the gravity feed from the main tank equal the pumping upwards from the fuge?

I'd be using the same size tubing both directions.

Thanks in advance!

Do you have a sump in this system?

Without a sump, fuge below display:
Use a drilled/reef ready tank or an overflow box in the main tank to gravity feed the fuge. Do not use a siphon. Use whatever size pump you deem necessary for the flow rate you want.

With sump, fuge below display, fuge water level above sump water level:
Put a T off of your sump feed into the fuge, drill the fuge so that it overflows into the sump.
