I have sumps set up on 2 of my tanks so I have used them but have never made one. The first one was store bought. The second is homemade but I didnt make it, it came with my 110 gallon when I bought it.
My question is would it be a good idea to use a 55 gal
to make a sump for a 60 gal
. The 60 currently has the store bought sump on it but its not big enough to add a refugium or even a decent amount of live rock. It barely holds the protien skimmer and pump. I have a 55 sitting empty that I dont intend to use for fish again so was considering making it a sump tank with lots of extra room for live rock and a refugium.
My 60 currently has live rock and corals along with a few fish in it.
