I am thinking the one 80 watt is the best choice here. And also it seems that I should not install it inline with my main returns. I will be using 2 Aqua Sea 2100 pumps to return water from my sump.
Regarding the last post: I guess i am not up on the exact terminology. My main filter is a large sump half filled with bioballs. I thought this is the same thing as a wet/dry or trickle filter? Let me know...
It is going to be a FO
with 300 lbs. of LR
. As far as a PS I am also trying to figure that out. I saw an ASM G5 on eBay for $530. What do you think? Suggestions are more than welcomed.
Yes it is a huge tank, but if I take it slow and stock with caution I think in the long run I will find that keeping it stable will be easier than a smaller tank. I got it for $2,000 from a family member (with wood cabinet). I could not say no!
Also, regarding the fact that I should not put the 80 watt UV
inline with my main return. Any suggestions for a dediacted pump for the UV
? The tank is acrylic with 2 large oval openings on top that have removable acrylic covers to seal them. The main intake for the sump is at the back of the tank through 2 separate towers (gravity fed). I am not sure how i could plumb another pump for the UV
without drilling/cutting into the acrylic. Could I run the UV
from the sump if I am already coinsidering running the PS from the sump?
Thanks a bunch,
