I want to build a refugium under my tank, in the stand to 1 increase my tank's water volume, 2 aid in filtration, and 3 grow microalgea. I have a 55 gal
AG with a right sided overflow with an Americal WetDry now.
Here is my idea. Space and money are limited so,
A, I want to move the WetDry all the way over to the right side of the stand
B, Place a 10gal acrilic tank on top of a Milk Crate on the left side of the stand
C, Plumb the overflow of the tank directly into the 10gal tank.
D, I want to use 1" pvc
pipe with a 1" angle in the 10gal for a siphone
E, I will attach a hose to another 1" angle at the top of the pvc
pipe and run that to the WetDry intake (gravity should keep the water flowing)
F, I will keep everything else the same, skimmer is in the WetDry and i will pump the water back into the tank with my current Rio1700 from the WetDry
Think it will work?
