Can someone help me out with plumbing? The tank has the standard marineland corner-flo. Ball valve placement, flex tubing or all PVC, i would like to place a manifold for a phosphate and calcium reactor down the road. Where do I place the manifold? What size return pump? Any recommended brands? Pictures welcome. Thanks!

Plumbing is simple! 3/4 flex line for return and larger flex for drain !tees for other parts should be down near the sump

What size return pump should I use for 60 gallon cube with standard corner overflow. I plan to place a 3 valve manifold; one for calcium reactor, one for phosphate reactor, and one that feeds back to fuge. All running off return pimp.

I run a mag 9.5 in my 60g cube. I dont run anything off of it though.

Do you really think a calcium reactor is needed? Usually thats for heavilyt stocked tanks.

I have it going directly from the sump to the output in the tank. When I wanna run reactors or extra things I use a separate pump for each piece of equipment.

If you run several items off the return pump you will notice alot more head loss as far the output of the return pump.
