    ok so chamber A is were my water gets pumped too and were the skimmer is
    chamber B is for live rock for more filtration beacause there is so little space in the display for live rock. chamber C is DSB. chamber D is for chaeto, and Chamber E is the overflow.

    Why not make the entire 2nd chamber dsb and place the cheato ontop of the dsb?

    Your design will work;)

    I cant remember the DSB:LR ratio, but its something like this... dsb of about 30x30x12cm can +- be = to 70kg's of LR when fully seeded

    Dsb is used to get aerobic and anaerobic bacteria..well mostly anaerobic bacteria...cause LR only has a min% of place in the rock itself were anaerobic bacteria can live.

    hope this helps a bit;)
