Start off here is the initial design...
Idea is to have water from the tank to be routed 1/3 to the fuge, and 2/3 stright to the sump. Initial plan was to have a overflowbox like this:
I have posted over at reef central and given ideas...
Can I drill the bottom of a temperd tank? If not, can I drill the back pane? Do I drill myself with a dremel, or take the tank somewhere? If I drill the 55, do I use 1 or 2 overflows? IF I drill, how do I go about making the overflow chamber for the tank?
I have been told, lose the BioBalls and sponges for more live rock and ruble. Ok, what kind of ruble?
The fuge portion of this design will be displayed, I have a stand that is divided in thirds, withthe center section (home of the fuge) with out doors. It should look pretty cool if I build it nice. The Fuge and sump are connected via a bulkhead in the fuge tank that will allow the water to just spill out into the sump.
Also, If I order the glass precut at a shop, how hard is it to build the sump myself?
I thank that is a good start...I am new to salt, this will be my first tank. I think it will be FOWLR
