    So I've recently got a Aqua One Mini Reef system (120L), link at the bottom. The system seems to work very well however the overflow drain is ridiculously noisy. Like I can hear falling water right now in another room. The water flows through into the weir and down into the drain as per this...

    Finally getting around to making progress on my newby 120 reef- by that I mean about to start curing rock and obtaining remaining supplies. So still a long way from stocking tank. My question revolves around the Mainland Cornerflo overflow system. It comes with a 1 1/2" inverted U drain (not...
  3. Water movement (pumps & wavemakers)
    I have a 90 gallon drilled tank that has been up running perfectly for over a year now. Today I was moving stuff around and all the sudden the water that is supposed to be coming out of my drain hose slowed drastically. So now the water level in the return area of my sump is very low. I don't...

    Please help! I have searched through hundreds of threads, but cant find one that matches my drain setup... most have the corner overflow or drilled in bottom. How do I convert this type of overflow to durso (or whatever will make it quietest)? I have a single drain, 1" on the back of the tank...

    I have had my tank finally set up for a couple days and it's cycling now with dry rock. My problem is that the drain is pretty loud, even louder than the mag 5. It's a bulkhead with a screwed on elbow and with a screwed on strainer. The person that gave me the strainer broke out a couple...
  6. The THINK Tank
    I am setting up a 40b display tank and a 10g sump. I want to drill my tank and do the beananimal style drain, but since I'm not going to be running a skimmer (bigger regular water changes), I don't know if there is any benefit to using a c2c weir, or an overflow box, or if I can just plumb the...

    So I have a small issue that I can't quite figure out. First some details on what I have. In the return section I have a Eheim 1260 pumping water in to the display. There is corner overflow box with a 1" bulkhead with a 1" standpipe and a Maggie Muffler Mini on top. A grey flexible drain...

    I'm in the process of building a 180g tank with a sump room :). My last tank was a 125g and it had 2 drains in the back/bottom of the tank and I ran 2 durso standpipes. I'm wanting to do something different this time around. I was thinking about getting a gl*******s kit but I wasn't sure if...

    Does anyone know the size of the predrilled holes on the oceanic tech 120?

    I read somewhere on here that somebody was building an ultra col overflow safeguard. Basically, it involved an electrical relay that required you to push a button to start the return pump. This way if the power went out and you broke siphon in the drain line, the pump wouldn't pump water out...

    I am having a huge microbubble problem. Im running an overflow, into a 40 gallon sump. It has bubble traps. I have a ball valve to throttle water on my feed, and my return pipes. Im noticing, the more water in the back of my overflow...no bubbles. I think this vortex that occurs when the water...

    Several people on this forum have been advocates for a settling area or tank. I wanted to get your thoughts on the following: Building the drain line to come all the way down into the bottom of the 1st section of the sump where the flow would then have to go up and over a baffle. If you have a...

    Does anyone know where I can get some black plastic/plexiglass to make a fake back wall on my tank? I want to make a custom overflow for a 20 gal tank so I can hide everything behind the wall without using a sump. Sort of like how the JBJ cubes are built.

    Ok, so after weeks of getting all my plumbing for my tank set up, i cant seem to get the amount of water returning to the tank to be equal to the amount going into the sump...ive been turning ball valves over and over but i still can get it...do i need to keep trying that or is there something...

    I built my sump/fuge, got my sand and rock, and now that everything is operational I am finding that I wish I had more flow from the drain... I have OK flow but I thought with a 1" drain it would be much faster. My drain is a 1" line from a drilled hole 2" from the top of the display tank...
