closed loop is rather simple !! the inline pump pulls water out of the tank and pumps it right back to the tank via one return or many up to you and your system !! sumps all up to you and your room most use rubbermaid containers and or smaller fish tanks !!

Here is another DIY site I have bookmarked: >>King Vinnie's Website<<
