Well I have a penguin 660 and then there is the HOT magnum filter that I have that although it is over 10 yrs old it still seems to work fine and might do better without media. I also have a small AC
I do have a pump from a water fountain (of the small garden variety) that I will not be using outdoors now as the fountain broke. I am not sure how powerful it is though. And I have a magnum 350 that I retired from an old tank a while back....the media basket was destroyed but it may also work empty just as a pump so I welcome any thoughts on the stuff I already have.
I am currently trying to figure out how to set up the sump using the 10 gal
tank I have. I saw another post with links to an overflow box from DFS for under $40 and I think it looks like an ideal way to get the water down there.
What say the experts?
The only other thing holding me back at the moment is the RO
issue since this will likely require my husbands involvement to install and that is usually where things break down. Not to mention I need to find a good one at the right price. But I am going to town and will price them at Lowes today. The other good thing with that is that it will be useful for more than just the fish tank so I think I can sell that idea fairly easily.
