For my upcoming 100gal FOWLR
tank, I'm thinking I'm gonna make a DIY
sump out of my old 55gallon that is just sitting around. I think it'll be good for helping to stabilize my water conditions (as more is better, yes?) and I've got nothing better to do with it.
I know I saw a formula for how powrful the powerhead had to be to pump a certain height (head height, I think it's called) and I was wondering if anyone knew what that formula was?
I have a Berlin XL venturi-style protein skimmer that will go in the sump. Any comments on this skimmer/set-up?
Also, I cannot find Yardright/OldCastle/Southdown at any of my local Home Depot's or Lowes' stores. I'm about to go on a trip down south anyway, so I will be checking Home Depots as I head southward. I don't know why I told you all that, but I guess I just think it's funny that I have to go a region south for sand. :P
