Hi fellow hobbyists,
I am very new to the marine tank set up. Currently running a seahorse only species tank with 2 canisters filter at each end for filtration.
I have another FW tank which i intend to convert into a sump that will serve the seahorse tank but i am still kinda confused on the proper compartmentalization of the sump tank which i hope to include a refugium.
Below is a draft sketch of the sump tank i intend to set up.
Can fellow hobbyist provide some inputs/alterations as to where i should change or improve upon?
Also, how do i know what pump size i should get for the tank?
My DT tank is 126cm x 23cm x 38cm(height) with water volume of about 90 to 92 litres only.
Intended sump tank dimension is 88cm x 17cm x 23cm (height)
Hoping to get some valuable inputs. TIA
Can anyone pls explain about sump tank.. is refugium consider part of sump or it is actually one of many other different types of sump setup? Or can anyone direct me to refugium discussion in SGReef. Cant seem dig the topic.
Can i just rely just sump tank with LR and sand + micro algae and some mechanical filter? Or just mechanical filter will do?
I had cycle my tank for like 4mths and still empty tank with LR and 3inch sand. Added some bacteria and followed all instruction by the Henry from Marine Life. Will the bacteria dead as there is no food..lol
Sorry for the lengthy post.
Iwarna is setting up a Display tank @ it's new show room! I know it's too early to post as we are still doing renovation but I CAN'T WAIT!
So some pictures to share and I will try my best to find time to post pictures weekly on the progress of the tank. We will be using the TRITON METHOD OF REEFING for this new tank setup
Iwarna's deepest tank for keeping SPS corals so fingers cross!
I am new to this forum. This is my first time to have a sump which i am not sure whether the sump design is correct.
Only got limited space therefore the size of sump would be 22" x 14" x 16".

Pump: Eheim Universal Pump 1250 x 2
Chiller: Not confirmed yet.
30" x 18" x 18"

Draft some picture to show the concept, Please help to comment and give advise. Thank you.
