sump baffels glass or plastic and how tall should they be??
am still trying to get a sump put together. I have a 30 long I'm going to use to construct it out of, just a few questions.
I it better to use glass or plastic to create the different compartments?
The glass I looked at, at home depot looked very thin compared to my tank glass, and most of the plastic stuff I saw was also thin looking and flexed very easily.
How tall do the pieces need to be? does it matter??
I'm planning on a small section about 6 inches with some bio balls, then water flows into a chamber about 20 inches or so containing live sand, live rock and such, then water goes into final chamber 10 inches with heaters, skimmer, and the pump to move it back to the tank.
Anything else I need to consider??
The main tank is 150 gallons with 2 over flow boxes.
