Good afternoon everyone!!
As many of you know I am in the process of building my new salt water aquarium set up. I am currently in the Sump design process. I finally have my tank that will be used as the sump tank. It is a 55 gallon tank. It is 48 inches long, 13-1/2 inches "wide" and it is 19 inches deep.
My question to you all is how do I go about placement of the baffles, and how many do I need?? Once I figure out the placement of my baffles I will be taking my tank to a local company who will be installing the baffles for me. They are very familiar with doing sump systems locally, so I trust them to install them correctly. However, I need something to go in with, and show them, "Okay, this is where this baffle needs to be, this is how high off the bottom it should be..." things like that.
I don't know how many separate filtration areas I need, nor do I know how many baffles I need, nor do I know how to decided when ones the water flows under, and which ones the water flows over...
Any advice you all can provide on baffle placement is greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!
