    Right let's give it a go

    This is my take at a reeftank , so far anyway as this baby grows by the month (usely at the end).

    Tank
    2400l x 660w x 700h
    It holds about 1000l
    overflow to the left hidden in a fake wall with some powerheads
    4x powerheads in left side pannel turning about 6800L/H
    2 x poweheads hidden to the right under the LR turning about 6000L/H will add more in future
    3x return pipes from my sump and my chiller adding some more water movement

    Sump
    1500l x 440w x 500h
    holds about 400L
    150mm DSB with a plenuim and refrugium with a kent phosban reactor
    2x return pumps turning about 7000L/H back to the tank

    Other
    1x heilia(spelling wrong but i aint going to the garage in this cold to check)
    1x return pump from my chiller turning about 6000L/H to my sump i suspect with head loss it's about 3000L/H
    1x RS2 reefteck skimmer plumbed from my overflow into my sump
    1x Delteck P600 calsium reactor

    Lights

    6x white(?) 54w t5 with reflectors
    2x Blue(?) 54w t5 with reflectors
    2x 150w 10 000k ventue's
    2x 150w 20 000k venture's

    Thats about it i know there is some room for improvement but this tank limmits what can be done. Yes if i knew then what i know now i would do it diffrent, but with time i will get that tank in the wall i always wanted. As for now with you guys helping me i will do what i can

    Hi Reef Bum, very very nice and neat sump. Question, where dis you buy all the plumbing/pipes/connectors/fittings etc to be used in the sump area? I'm also in JHB.
