Anyone know a site that I can get ideas for a sump/refug/propagation/acclimation type of sump?
I will be constructing a 96x36x30 starphire glass tank RR
Im looking along the lines of a 150 to 180 gallon sump on a lower floor below the tank. The sump room is 15.6 feet x 6 feet. height of the room is 10 feet. what would be the most efficient scenario. one long sump sectioned off with different water levels flowing across or different tanks stacking and gravity flowing downwards.
also, what is the best way the water should flow:
ie: refuge/propagation/acclimation/sump machinery(calc reac,phos reac,skimmer, chiller ect)
any input would be helpful

check out http://melevsreef.com lots of great info on there

i think one big sump will be more manageable than a bunch of little ones.

as far as the order of things, i'd do acclimation > propagation > equipment > refugium. You want the fuge to be as close as possible to the main tank so that some pods can make it up and not get sucked in by the skimmer. I'm putting equipment after acclimation and propagation because I want the kalk to mix/dilute a bit before hitting any corals
