I have a 55gal with a custom built 20 gal
sump/refugium. Im shifting to a 110gal which comes with a canister filter. My overflow I made is not as strong as my rio2100 return pump.
Would it be a good idea to use the canister as an intake to my sump; only putting nitrate and prefilter sponges in it, so that the flow of the combined unit would be stronger??? Isn't that a great idea????? Like the water would come in the canister, pass through some sponges for detritus, then exit "into" the sump to go through bioballs live rock matrix and then the refuge but at a stronger rate?!?!
Wouldn't that be amazing?! Would it be smart??? Would it work?????
