I have my 75g in place and would like to set it up while I cure my new live rock in the 110g DT. The previous owner built it as a DIY project and said it was setup before the DT was connected.
It is interesting because he used 1/2 of it as a "refugium" but it was really another display tank for his basement (the 75g was in the basement, the 110g DT was on the main floor).
I took a few pictures so all my AA helpers could understand what I am talking about. Can I set this up on its own for 2-4 weeks while I cure my rock in the other tank?
I would need to know where everything would go, and the seller isn't able to answer tonight. Could anyone provide some insight? I tried labeling it appropriately; let me know if I am completely off! I know there will be MANY opinions, and am prepared for it!
(I am assuming water would flow from top right, through baffle walls acting as bubble stoppers [which are more than 1" apart but they worked for him], into refugium, down algae ramp and into chamber with return flow.)
Here is the view from the refugium side
