    I have had a toms siphon overflow to get my tank water to my sump for about a year. it does the job when properly maintained. My problem is that it doesn't skim the surface of the water... i have to rely on my canister filter with a bulky unwanted plastic surface skimmer attachment that kinda...

    I am looking to pick up a better overflow for my sump. Currently I use the eshopps siphon brand. Works good, has never "completely" lost siphon but has come close. Usually air will build up in siphon until the water turn over is low enough to lower the level in my sump. I then notice it and suck...

    Okay, so i have a 20 gallon long tank that i am going to make into a reef sooner or later. I also have a 10 gallon tank, would that be a suitable sump? If so, how would i go about making it into a sump? Alsooo, what would be better, a sump or a hang-on refugium with protein skimmer?

    I am looking on Ebay for an overflow box for my 20g . Can anyone give me an idea what gal per hour I would need to flow into the sump? And what would be a sufficient flow for a return pump...? Thanks:wavey:

    What would be a nice sump that includes a refugium and a skimmer for 120-180 gallons? Also, if you have a stand tank and canopy and the tank doesnt have an overflow how do you filter it? I am new to stand and canopy setups.:idea:

    anyone ever tried using a HOT filter unit as a powered overflow... benefits for this would be , no loss in suction and no flooding in the event of a power failure. What i mean by using it of coarse would be taking out all the filtration media and drilling for bulkheads in the bottom.. ideas...

    I have a fully loaded 46Gallon bowfront with the 10 gallon sump in the bottom of the stand. (These pix are a few years old ... looks much better right now ... more full ... coraline algae all over everything ... more hair) I go through cycles of "wow this looks great, I should keep doing it"...

    Okay, so I am reading too much good information about all of these things, but don't know much about them, and want to get a good handle on them before I go too crazy modifying my setup. What are the differences between Sump, Overflow, and Refugium? How does the water get from the display...

    I've been beginning plans on a sump and I've been hoping to drill the tank, but I have no idea if I have tempered glass or not. There are no stickers; the tank seems like a custom job. Is there anyway to identify if I'm going to shatter an entire pane when I try to drill it?

    I hear alot of talk about tanks crashing now or in the past. I would love to learn from your mistakes. How did you tank crash?

    I think I’ll play along with the build-off as well. I have ordered a custom Oceanic tank, and while I’m currently waiting for it (and wondering if it will ever show up), I have been keeping busy with my current set-up and planning for the new one. If you look at my few other posts on this board...
