Well I've been slowly building my new 40gallon breeder sump for my 125 gallon SW
tank. I've got 20.5 inches left to split between my return section, nd the fuge. The setup is going skimmer-return-fuge.
My question is, how much of the free space should I use to make the return section? I want to make it as big as possible to reduce evaporation, but I don't want to cut my fuge side too small. The fuge area will be 13.5, possibly 14 inches high, and I want to do a 5-6 inch DSB
with macroalgae, LR
I was thinking having the return section 8 inches, and the fuge 12... but would this be too small to help reduce evaporation?
Thanks in advance for any input! I've been wracking my brain trying to decide!!
