Got my sump all set up and running this afternoon. Its a recycled 24 gallon tank. I'm using a filter sock to pre filter the big stuff out and I have my reef octopus skimmer in there as week. Skimmer isn't running yet though because I overlooked the fact that it needs to be in 6 to 10 inches of water to run and my sump is 12" drop. Have to get a stand for it. After like 2 hours of fine tuning I got my overflow box and return pump matched up so my water level stays steady. I left plenty of room in my sump for excess water in the event of power failure. Just hope that little aqua lifter does its job. Makes my display tank look awesome without the heater and that power filter in there.
