I've been searching around and looking up info on FOWLR
setups and had a few questions, mostly about sump tanks. Are they hard to make? I pretty much understand whats going on in the sump, I guess im stuck on exactly how its getting to and from the main tank. I know you use a pump to get it back in, is it being siphoned into the sump? I dont have a hole in my tank and dont see myself putting one in so I would have to use an overflow right?
also what I was planning on at first was to just have the LR
for a while before i got any fish to put in the tank and after I got all that set up then add the fish later on. I've heard that some people dont use filters if they have enough LR
to match their tank size. I have a 55 gal
which is 48x12x18 in height. I have a small 10 gallon that isnt in use so i was thinking I might be able to use that for something...
everything seems like its getting confusin
so much reading and I feel like I havent understood anything lol
any info and help is appreciated
