I just uploaded some pics to my gallery. There is one in there of the sump setup in my 65g tank. The drawing is probably more informative as the sump is tucked under a cabinet and all of the plumbing goes up the back of the tank. Hopefully you'll get the idea, though.

Two other things I forgot to mention are a light for growing the calepera (pretty cheap setup easily obtained at HD) and a float switch, to shut off the pump if the water in the sump gets too low. This is a good safety net to have. If for some reason the overflow doesn't keep up with the return pump, the water level will drop in the sump and the pump will shut off before I empty my sump onto my bedroom floor!


"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I apologize if my last remarks sounded condescending . . . that means when you talk down to people."
120g RR, 65g HOB and 10g sump, 150g frag tank, 100g sump. Highlights of live stock: Golden Moray eel, 2 purple tangs, 2 yellow tangs, 1 large copperband, 4 GSM's, dragon wrasse, barnacle blenny, 2 pajama cards, 3 green chromis and a dynamic assortment of soft & LPS corals.
