Pressure tested the sump. Up and running for about two weeks now. Time to get the display done now!
Not even a single comment? Ah well.So this is my idea for the overflow spacing of the pipes...... It's fairly low profile, 4cm wide, and 16cm x 14cm. The overflow will have three 32mm pipes. The primary and secondary pipes will have a standpipe siphon breaks, and the last on full siphon. Bearing in mind this tank is only 180L and my flow rate is only going to be around 1000L/hr, these pipes are overkill... The primary pipe will be regulated to a standing height in the overflow box just below the secondary, using a ball valve. The reason for the back pressure from the valve is to make the flow quiet. For whatever reason the primary gets blocked, the secondary is will allow for water flow, but on a siphon break. If for some reason both the primary and secondary block up, there is a final back up, on full siphon...
Hoping for some input here.... Any glaring issues?
No home dog, we chatted over WhatsApp, so we're good was just hoping to get a few opinions on the subject! Thanks for all the support!Mooi my bru
I gave you my comments on your overflow and they might have ended up in the suggestion box Have you bought the glass yet?
100% agree. In areas of suitable niches, corals will dominate available space! In my opinion, who'd not want to completely cover rock with coral It's natural!People ask why such a heavily dominated coral system
I for one am a major fan of a heavily stocked system such as ours.
Chuck the corals in and let nature take its own course IMO.
Most of the local shops stock it, or similar brands like SeaChem.thanks you so much bud did you get it online ?
