Okay guys I am removing my wet/dry trickle with bio balls all together. I am going to salvage my 10g refugium. I have two tanks that will be utilized under the cabinet.
I am shooting for something close to melevs sump model f but maybe with a variation.
The tank that will house my skimmer is 24x12x16, my refugium is 20x12x12 which i will elevate so that the overflow will work with the 16" tank.
Anyways my question is how should I break up the skimmer tank. I was hoping to incorporate a chamber with some live rock rubble but I do not think it will be possible space wise. Will I be okay with a large skimmer and return section only with the refugium overflow draining into the return area.
The skimmer section will take up about 10-11" so it will end up being 11x12x9 water height.
90 gallon FOWLR 45gallong sump with Oceanic #6 skimmer. Iwaki return pump. Koralia 4 and two 300 gph powerheads.
