Official sump pimp club.
 
Some of the other filters have a pimp club, cameras have pimp clubs, why not a sump pimp club? I say we bring sump related talk to this thread to help others out with questions they have regarding set-up or issues with existing sumps. Any takers?

Nice, I have a sump on my 125g co2 planted angel tank (would love some discus), I also have a sump on my 55g turtle tank.

Sump Pimp #2

~25gal sump on my 125gal turtle tank. Wet/dry style filter, dual drains,dual returns, Magdrive 1800 pump. Drilled in the bottom for all plumbing and modified by me to allow the water to be filled 4/5 of the way.

I've got a sump on the 75g in my sig. :D

So, who's gonna tell me what a sump does, how it's set-up and do I need one with a 30g tank?

Some things will be different for freshwater applications, but you can get the gist of it from the link. There's a 3-part detailed guide on them at the bottom as well.

Honestly IMO unless it's salt water you don't need one, but they are nice as you have
a larger water volume
cheaper (if DIY) to build that a canister
and I think it is easier to clean as well.
You can hide all of your equipment
customizable

The link below is great and will answer what it does and how it's setup.
But since it is custom you can build it to your prefference, and how it will best suite you.
I want this thread to be for people to ask questions regarding how this works, or how to set this up? or whatever.
By all means ask any questions you have.
I'll get some recent pics of my sump tomorrow and post them up.

Is there room for those who would have a sump if they could but currently can't? If not I can wait. :smile:
