So, after telling myself that a 29 gallon was all i needed. I went out and ordered a 90 gallon All-Glass MegaFlow tank last week. It's predrilled with an overflow built in on one side. The aquarium will be a reef tank consisting of as many fish as possible, tons of overpriced pet rocks and a few corals thrown in.
My question is...
What are the pros and cons to the different sump setups and related return pumps (i.e. in sump or in line pump)?
My lighting is provided by a Current USA 48" Orbit Extreme 4x130 Watt (520 watts total for those of us without enough fingers and toes to count that high) Power Compact fixture. I currently have no plans for MH
lights or a chiller (i'll just have to wait and see how hot these new 130 watt PC
Anyone out there using this fixture?
I'm big on the K
.I.S.S. strategy (Keep It Simple Stupid) and have been looking for the most straightforward sump/refigium setup i can bulid/buy. I will be drilling an additional 2 holes in the tank to allow for 3 different returns from the sump.
Part B question is...
What pump will allow me to maximize the 600gph max rated flow for my built in aquarium overflow and allow me to have 3 return outlets in the tank?
