Put a 45deg or so angle on the pipe entering the sump. You can also add another straight piece after the elbow so that the discharge is just below the water line. There is more than enough aeration without causing massive splashes.I have the sump in the bottom of the tank... So its basically the front and sides which is a U and slides in...
I have a pipe that flows horizontally and splashs onto the sump water(I thought this will help with Oxygen)... will try and make the water flow straight into the first chamber on the sump and see it that helps...
Very cool idea FrannaThis is a idea that a friend gave me to stop splashing. Over your downpipe put a larger pipe going further down into the water than you downpipe. And you must put a cap on top with a small breather hole and that will reduce the saltspray caused from the water going into your sump making bubbles that when they pop cause saltspray.
