OK was at my LFS
store today and picked up my skimmer and a Return pump.. Now before I post pictures. 2 weeks ago I bought a HOB
Eshopps skimmer from the LFS
(They only sell Saltwater stuff), reason for that was I was going to start by using my canister.
Then last weekend we stopped in again and the one guy said that I should upgrade to a sump when I can, then I bought a 20G tank for the sump. I cannot return the HOB
Skimmer, it was special order and they have posted, no returns on special orders.. so not a big deal, I will the HOB
skimmer on the sump as seen below.
In the pictures I have Dry erase marks on the tank for dividers.. I was doing the bubble trap right after the inlet/skimmer but the guy at the LFS
suggested the same on the return pump side. I need one divider on the return side I think for a minimum water depth for the pump..
So where should I have the bubble traps and dividers? Looking for some input on that
