Morning Marine type gurus...
I have some plumbing questions, I have just brought a second hand 180g reef ready tank and ancillaries, but it's not a complete setup, I have skimmer, 40g sump, pumps and power heads, but no flow and return plumbing.
This is my first marine tank, and I'm trying to set up on a minimal budget.
My question is, on the water return from tank to sump, how would I plumb that? Should I just have the bulkhead fitting in the bottom of the tank and pipe from that direct to the sump, or should I have a pipe running from the bulkhead to near the top of the weir thing where the surface water flows from the tank?? I have seen a kit at my LFS but as I said, I'm on a tight budget.
My other question refers to the flow from the sump pump back up to the tank, any ideas on the best way to plumb that?
As always Thanks in Advance
