So With the tax season upon us, its the time to sink some money into my 55Gal Upcoming reef. Im going to sink maybe 300-400 bucks into this set up and go from there.
Where im at now is ive got nothing excpet the sock holder and going to get a 10 Gal
tank from walmart tomarrow. For now im going to set up a basic tank sump with no baffles. Im looking to Add a CPR Overflow box, my concern is can I Get away with 300 GPH
Overflow on a 55. I dont plan on using this overflow box for anything else. Its going to stick with this tank for the life of it.
So my plan is 300GPH Overflow box, into a 10Gal Sump filtered though a 200 Micron filter sock. Gonna work some chato into the sump with maybe alittle rubble rock, not sure yet. Seaclone 100 Protein Skimmer, Maybe go with 150. then to a return pump back to the tank with a ball valve just incase. Im not 100% Sure What return pump im going to use yet but Tips are welcome.
My Biggest concern with the over flow box, Is 300 GPH
Good enough. The tank has 2 PH in each corner of the tank pushing 800 GPH
Each. So intank flow isnt a problem at all, But when it comes to the sump GPH
Im lost. Any help would be nice.
