I have a 55gallon that will have about 20 gallons of sump/refuge.
I plan on fish, softies, shoorm, zoos something like that, I have yet to figure this part out. I will be placing about 90lbs of live rock in it and the sump/fuge. DSB
in the fuge, shallow sand in the tank.
I am thinking of pushing about 800GPH though the sump, from a 12gph overflow box, that would be just over 1
of my total volume. Does that sound correct? I will also have at least one powerhead in the tank that will have a swivel flow. the sump will pump up to 4 outputs ranging from right at waterline to about 6" deep. Streams will cross to create turbliance. Flow will be directed with 3/4" loc-line parts.
Should the line up from the tank be 1" or 3/4" pvc
Is 800GPH too much? It is my primary water movement.
my lighting will be 4 odno (2x) 4ft 6500k lights for about 256 watts and 2 VHO
actinac bulbs powerd my NO
balasts powering themat 50% or qbout 100watts total blue. This gives me about 350 watts I guess, for about 6 watts a gallon... may be too much, but it is not MH
, so I wetn with High Numbers. The bulbs will rotate on though the day, with all 6 only on for a few hours a day.
How does this sound?
