I just picked up a 75 gal tank to replace my refugium (only 45 gal). Hopefully I can get it all configured today and do a large water change this week to install it. Only issue it was drilled on the side. I'm thinking of getting a bulk head and putting a PVC cap on it and it should be fine. What do you think?

Ok. Here's my proposed plan for my new sump. Feedback?

1- bio balls on egg crate and covered by egg crate with filter floss then top for securing drains
2- protein skimmer/ pump for uv?
3- media bags on egg crate shelf and carbon reactor/ pump for uv?
4- refugium
5- sponge
6- return pump

So I've been looking at different diagrams of sumps online and now I'm debating on doing away with the bio balls. What do you think?
