Question about sump cycles
I am having a bout of reef paranoia and wanted some input. About how often should I turn my water volume through my sump/fuge combo an hour? The sump is where my phosban and skimmer are located. As far as the main tank, there is about 200lbs of live rock up there and im using a single tunze @ 1800g/hr and a mag 9.5 @ about 8 ft./head so I figure im knocking around all 145 gallons about 15 - 20 times an hour above the sump, however I think im only passing the volume *through* the sump about 7 times an hour. Time to bump the mag 9 to an 18?
