So I have a 55 gallon tank that I am going to set up later down the road. I have a 20 gallon long tank I want to use as a sump. I want to make the sump a display fuge with LR and macro algaes. I know this has been done but what is the best design for it? I have my 55 gallon right next to my FW 20 gallon long and was going to move that so I could put the sump there is I am going to make it a display fuge. I would love some help on where and how to put the discharge...that would lead through the macro algae(I have a protein skimmer that can hang on back or be in sump pic below) and then lead to a return pump into the DT. I might also want to keep a clown or other fish in here if possible.
