@aaronjohn20 : VERY VERY VERY nice point. Sump will be a 40g (48x13x16), tank 75g (48x18x22). So, with 1 1/2 inch approx of water going down when pump is off, I have 5 gallons + what's in the pipes to keep in mind when designing the sump. I'll use about 30 feet of 3/4 inch PVC
pipe and 30 feet of 1 inch pvc
. I plan to put 10 inches of water in the sump, so I have 6 inches left (15 gallons), so 5 gallons for the main tank, and 10 gallons for the pipes, think that's more than enough!! I planned to use 12 inches of water, but 10 will be safer.
@MacDracor : Yeah, there's a black one (probably a black belt) that decided it would pass next winter in my shed. I'll have to take kung fu lessons.
