Hi,
First of all ,I appreciate all your help that you guys have given to me on my last thread!
I have ordered a 140 gallon RR combo (oceanic) with cherry stand & canopy. It will arrive in a couple of days.
This tank has 2 overflows. I am confused as to where each pump / filtration peice goes and in which order to put them.
I am guessing that you would come out of the left overflow(down 8 feet into basement) into the sump/ refugium, then into the skimmer and back up8 feet to the return.I am not sure where the pump(s) would go or how many gph I should have. Also , If I buy a red sea berlin skimmer ,I think that includes a pump?!.
Any help and/or a simple diagram would be a great help!
Thanks, Matt

Hmmmm.... if you are going to run the sump in the basement, than you are going to need a VERY powerful return pump...

My suggestion would be to start with a small setup to get a hands on education on how the pumps, sumps, overflows, returns, skimmers, etc... work before you jump into something major like plumbing a basement sump...
