    I am putting together a 75 gallon sump to go under my 90 gallon tank. I have always used a canister filter, so a sump will be a new experience. Here is a diagram of what I have in mind. There doesn't seem to be any universally accepted sump configuration. What I hope to achieve here is a...

    Hey y'all, I'm building a sump for a 185 gallon planted tank, and I'd love to get your feedback. This will be built in a 40 breeder, and I'd like to have it include a refugium -- to have plants growing in the evening to offset pH changes, use for acclimation, and possibly store a bully fish...

    Hello everyone! I've been in the hobby for almost 20 years now (when did that happen, I'm not that old) and I've decided to finally jump off the deep end. For me, that means upgrading to a MUCH larger tank and far more complex setup than anything I've attempted before. 50 gallons of awesome...

    Hello everyone, I plan on setting up a 40 gallon breeder display with a 20 gallon long sump and CO2 after the holidays. I have long been debating on using a sump instead of a canister, but after a few months of having a diy 10 gallon wet dry on my turtle tank the ease of maintenance is awesome...
