so would you say that my math is about right in regards to pump size ?
i have 150 liter tank X10 = 1500 liter an hours flow
elevated clime of approx 4FT meaning ii would need approx 2500 liter an hour (+) pump ?
Thank you all so much for your patients
can some one post pics of crushed corel and sand plz i see lots on google but it all looks new and i want an idea of its look after been running some time thanks
I have Crushed Coral in my tank, should be able to see it in my album pictures. If not, I'll take some more for you.
Your math on your powerheads is correct, 1500lph.
Sump return on the other hand, this is based off what your overflow is going to be, depends on how many pipes are running water to your sump. If you have a 600gph 1" overflow then you need approx a 750gph return pump, that would come close with head loss to 600gph. Must know what your overflow will be in order to answer what your return will be. Best acrylic sump/fuge info out there. Melevsreef.com | Acrylic Sumps & Refugiums
