About ready to order my stuff. Here's what I have in mind. Please give me your input on anything and everything. If I'm missing anything. And I have a few questions as well.
Here's what I'm looking at:
PF-300 Overflow Box
Reef Aquarium Filtration: Eshopps Overflow Boxes
Flex hose (connect overflow box to sump bulkhead) with 1" adapters
Flex hose with 1" fixed adapters (both ends) - 4 feet | eBay
10' 3/4" Vinyl tubing (for return line/s)
Aquarium Plumbing: Lee's Vinyl Tubing 3/4" ID
3/4" ball valve (for adjusting water flow from return pump.. just in case)
Aquarium Plumbing: Ball Valves from Two Little Fishies
insert tee connector (for splitting return line into two)
Aquarium Plumbing: Insert Tee Connectors
a bunch of these 3/4" hose clamps
Aquarium Plumbing: Plastic Clamps
2 x directional u-tube (for water return outlet)
Aquarium Plumbing: Directional U-Tube
SeaClone Protein Skimmer
Aquarium Filtration & Water Quality: SeaClone Protein Skimmer
And I'm still a little confused on..
how would I attach a filter sock to the the bulkhead in my sump picture? (in the bottom left area of the first container)? I could stick a couple inches of PVC
in there and just rubber band the filter sock onto it?
overflow box is rated for 300gph. return line will split in 2 and have about 2-3 feet of head each line. what gph
should I look for in a return pump?
Does anyone have any experience with the above skimmer? Is it reputed? Will it be good? Will my skimmer need an air pump and airline tubing?
Thank you all in advance for helping and dealing with me
