afilter, i have the same 90gal setup. Do you have any pictures of your sump area. I am still in the process of setup even though i have been running for about 3 months now.

My current setup is a 90gal overflow, 29gal sump with three sections, ASM g3 protein skimmer in sec 1, Checkvalve overflow into sec 2 and return pump in sec 3. no bio balls, no media. Tank looks great except very little cyno breakout.

Any suggestions?

90_berlin_joe.

Here is the link I used to build my sump/fuge:

http://aquariumadvice.com/viewtopic.php?t=53046

The glass looks exact except I only used a 30g tank.

Chamber one:
Drain hose at the bottom, a layer of bio ball, a layer of filter media, and a layer of carbon in a poly bag all seperated by egg crate.

Chamber two:
1 Heater and CPR BAK PAK2 filter/skimmer hanging on side

Chamber three:
Baffle system with 1 heater

Chamber four:
Return pump

Chamber five:
Refugium with 3"+ sand bed, small amount of rubble and grape clapura.

I meant to take step by step pics during setup, but I got busy and it did not happen. I will try to get some pics tonight, but it is partially blocked because of the stand.

This was my first ever sump and so far it seems to be working as planned. As you can see by the pic I left my canister filter on for now until the sump and additionaly LR get established.

HTH,
