Mine measures 15 h 12 w 30l I was going to copy Linus reef build on YouTube except I was going to change the skimmer the the first stage then the fuge then return
It would be 13" high for first chamber to high? Second 10" then bubbletrap 14" high top 1" open at bottam then 8" on other side were the return pump is are those measurements alright or should I change something?
