I want a sump on my tank. It is a 36 gal
, but I want the increase of area will help with air and so on. This will provide me a place for my protein skimmer and some other things I have in my tank. But here's my issue. I do not want to drill into my tank, as it has already cycled. I am able to grasp lots of things around this aquarium, but this sump confuses me.
This is what I keep coming back to as I search.
Aqueon ProFlex Modular Sump Filtration Systems at PETCO
I like that I could switch up how I use it if I wanted to, but will be using it Berlin style.
So, I know I'll need an overflow... I was looking at the Aqueon HOB
one. I know most of you guys don't like HOB
overflows, but it is pretty much my only choice. Would I need 2, one for intake and one for return? Or can I just take my PRV pipe right into the tank, or above it, with a screen?
I'm also confused in terms of pumps. The intake pump is 550 gph
, but the only return pumps offered by the company are 485 and 630 so I figure that I'd need to match it. I don't know, it is the whole pump part that fries my brain. This is where I need the most imput.
