ahhh ok..thank you for the explaination..soo in theory, if I had a 55g dt with a 20 g fuge...it should have the chemical stability of a 75 gallon tank?? only other question is how does one get the water out of the dt and back in? predrilled holes? or another method

There are really 2 ways to get from the DT to the fuge. One is a drilled tank and the other is with a HOB overflow. People can drill holes in an existing tank but you do risk ruining the tank if you make a mistake. Most with tanks that aren't pre-drilled do go for a HOB overflow.

Just in case someone is reading this thread on how to build a sump let me give you a BIG piece of advice. If you get glass baffles, MAKE SURE you get glass that is at least 1/4" thick. I've had 3 pieces crack on me and it has been a royal pain. I started with 1/8" and it just isn't thick enough, they break very easily.
