I am in progress of setting up my first sw
tank and have a couple of questions regarding a closed loop system, plumbed over the top. My tank is a 85 gal
, Ehiem canister filter (163 gph
), Remora skimmer (295 gph
), and Quiet One 6000 pump (1506 gph
). I'm planning on using 1 return towards bottom center of the tank, and 2 outputs, 1 on each side on top.
-- The pump has 1" in/output, but came with reducers (1/2"). Should I use these, or do I want to keep 1" throughout?
-- What is a good source for parts? I'm looking for a 'U' to use on top, instead of 90's. I can't find 'em at lfs
or hardware stores.
-- Is there a certain type of vinyl tubing to use? What kind of psi am I looking at?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
