I'm not familiar with the closed loop technique. Could you explain how that works? Currently, the sump is the main source of circulation for my tank, I hope to add some powerheads shortly, whenever I acquire a new pump.

It's using plumbing to take water from the tank using a pump and putting it right back in most often used to create wave currents or avoid putting ph in the tank.

www.melevsreef.com goes into more detail.


If you haven't figured it out yet I like to BOLD links :P
