I found mine by looking at 1018234901289012 other sumps online and in person. Just compiled the info and built what I thought was best. My skimmer is 2nd merely because I couldn't fit the skimmer into the far left (as my electrical is on that end) and I didn't want to have to move everything over. But, most of the pics I found had the LR Rubble first anyways. Makes sense about the oxygen comment though Decide what you want to put into your sump first, how big the "footprint" is for the skimmer, and how much room you have left for a bubble trap, fuge, and LR chamber. Plan it out, and let us know. HTH

This would be true... but as is, my pump had to be cut back because it was a bit strong for my 60. So, by just opening it up with some flow into my fuge... everything worked out great! Just depends on if you're using 100% of your pump for circulation or not. I just didn't want to run two pumps. Again, there's 10841290123 different possible configs for sumps.

Makes sense Brenden. I don't see why that wouldn't work.

Rob - Sounds good. At least this sump will have more room than my current wet/dry sump to work with. The refugium was just an idea to put everything into one rather than having 2 containers. Plus, I think it will server an additional filtration purpose that will be excellent for my friends.
