I doubt mine will break any new ground. It will have 2 removable plastic containers leading into a partitioned 2x1x1 foot tank. I took the emergency overflow ideas into my design which was something that had not occurred to me and seeing your design connected some dots with missing numbers
I really want a lot of different areas for various filter media which i'll be able to do easily enough. I will have a wier overflow system creating further spaces to place different media as well as the initial 2 plastic containers that are hopefully going to be a noise baffle.
The only idea of my own i had that may or may not work is to possibly eliminate the risk of a syphon starting if the return pump cuts out by making a very small hole in the return line, just below the water line ine the display tank. A siphon can start but i think that oncethe small hole is above the waterline oxgyen will enter and kill the siphon.
Anyway the tank is looking great. I can';t wait to see how the scape develops over time.
