    I currently have a 650x650x350 cube. including sump with small dsb 2months old.
    I am getting a 1500x 600x 500 tank with sump (Idol Marine Tank) planning a decent size dsb . I am planning to have the two setups. Using the 650 cube as a frag tank.
    Do I use the new sump for both 650 and 1500. Or do I run them separate each with their own sumps and equipment.

    If I use 1 sump for both. Can I add such a big water volume to the 650 cube established water cycle or do I start a separate cycle in the 1500 tank.

    I would rather spend the extra cash and make it a completely separate system. You could also use the smaller as a quarantine tank as well as a frag tank.

    It would be better so have all connected as you will then benefit from the stability of the bigger system. More water means more stability.
