Getting back into the tank after a few years away from my passion.
Good times, my partner wants to renovate the house and add an extension
(there had do be some kind of trade off right????
Okay, heres some queries which I've been trawling through the web looking for hints and clues on-
Aquaria will be 250cm x 100 cm x 130 cm (approx 3250 litres) with a 400 litre sump. South American tropical set up.
Weir over flow feed to sump and pump return
5 chambers in sump-
- Inlet with foam
- Bio balls
- Charcoal & filter wool
- Pump chamber
Various ideas out there on 'turnover' of water in a system this size from 1/2 tank per hour to 7 tanks per hour. Even ig I go for two changes in an hour I'm still look at a 8000 litre per hour pump which just fits in last chamber in sump (although I can have the sump built differently)
Thoughts and opinions appreciated!!!!!!
