Sorry for the black background.. MSPaint screwed up and i was too lazy to fix it and i didn't want to start over.
So basically.. this is what i have in mind. But it'll be on a standard AGA 10G tank.. so it will be everything in that picture but downsized. I just want to know if that design will be ok.. One question though.. can i use less baffles? In the picture i have 4 leading to the Return Pump area.. so can i just use two or three instead of 4? If anyone has any suggestions on using such a small tank for the whole sump/refugium idea please let me know because i'm looking for a better more space efficient design. But for now.. that pretty much looks like it will be the final product. I definitely want a refugium though.. even if it means cutting back on the intake and return sections, so anyone giving ideas please don't cut out the fuge.
Also, how can i cut this acrylic? Like i i have some excess length or width on it.. do i need special tools to cut it? Or can i use a router bit or dremel or.. ?? The thickness of the acrylic is going to be 1/4"
Another question, can i use GE I Silicone to attach the baffles to the tank? Or do i have to use that #12 or #3 Welders silicone or whatever that stuff is?
