    i started with this sump and a k@k skimmer that i replaced after two years.
    I hooked it up with a 1500l/h powerhead and a airpump to get the most out of him( R300 for skimmer)

    I replaced my old sump with a dsb(this will follow later)

    I had alot of problems with algae and cyno, and did not know what to do, so ijoined a forum in america for a few months but this only helped me a bit, so i decided to join a S.A forum.....MASA!!
    This helped me and my system alot.
    I was bit lost in the begining with terms like DSB,DT ect
