Ok in short. DO I need and if so what size sump for a 224g acrylic aquarium?
Im getting a 224 acrylic aquarium that needs finishing work on the stand and the ppl started sanding it but have stopped due to a moving situation. So I have some polishing and finishing work to do on the stand at first. But then my house will have a 224g empty aquarium. So... With that thought in mind. And the project work going to take maby a week or 2(I hope).
Im thinking about using a sump. But not sure if I need it or if I should just use canisters. Im clueless when it comes to sumps. I know it pulls water down from the overflow box and a pump sends it back to the tank. But there is a part of me that is afraid of them and thinks it will end up flooding me home. Can someone help me on this new project. I will post pics and current events when I get started. Thanks.
I think I need a Sumps for dumbbells book.
BTW its going to be a freshwater cichlid tank. And I dont over crowd my tanks.
Also... Is there a way I can use a canister filter as the pump?
hehee just thinking.
