So I have a 46 gallon bow I transferred all my stuff into today cause my 40g was leaking. Anyway I am going to build a sump/refugium for it. Trying to use the stuff I already have. I have a CPR overflow box, CPR bak pak skimmer, whistler power hob
filter. Now im wondering since I can fit it would it be a good or bad idea to
Run the filter on the sump? Do I even need it? I plan on putting LR
rubble, sand and chateo in the fuge part. This is my first sump build by the way... Any input would be appreciated. I've put baffles in before so I know how to do that much. My question is pretty much is it a good idea to run the hob
filter? Should I make a spot for a filter pad in the sump? Use a filter sock? So many options!!! Thanks in advance to all that give input/advice. Also what's a good return pump?
