How To Build a Sump with Baffles. | Reef Aquarium Information - Brett's Reef Aquarium

I found this video, is this a good plan to go off of? I searched on here and couldn't find a DIY video.

Also what would you guys recommend for a canister filter for a 110 gallon reef tank?

How To Build a Sump with Baffles. | Reef Aquarium Information - Brett's Reef Aquarium

Good example or no? Also what kind of filters will I need? A canister, protien,?

Sorry for all the questions, but this military town has NO books on this, I've read as much as I can on the internet.

Thanks!

I apologize the link works now...must of been my computer

Anyways, what would recommend for the canister? I'm not looking for cheap, but not super expensive, something that will work for a while until I can spend more money down that road. I'm very excited to start the build on my sump.

Again thanks for the help everyone has provided.

Also last question, could someone point me to a good protien skimmer, and canister filter? I tried to talk to the 1 lfs, and they wanted me to spend a ton, I have a feeling they just want to make money. I've heard people say go LR with just a hang on the back filter and a good protien skimmer, like I said I'm going to start working on a 30g sump, and suggestions for a first timer?. Like I said I'm learning, but there are no store here, and I'm waiting on my books to come in the mail.


THANKS!

Do you guys think a 30g sump is big enough for a 110 gallon?

Also is this a good protien skimmer?

30 would probably do. If you can fit a bigger one it is always better. The more water volume you have the easier it is. Also if you can find a way to fit a refugium that opens up a lot of possibilities for filtration that are very helpful.

That is a good skimmer. I have not heard many complaints about the reef octopus skimmers.
