I don't see where the return pump goes, shows it in that chambe somewhere. You can use that protion as the fuge, but, if the macro algae gorws into the retun pump, you will have issues.

Hmm I was hoping for a nice clean look I think what ill do if i get it is see where the return is and if it is interfering ill try and build a sump or modify the return. What would some good beginner fish be I like the idea of a goby shrimp pair but i don't know what else( CUC, coral, fish,). This is probably not going to happen for a while but I am one of those people who likes to plan everything out

Back to my other question. If you have a sump rated for twice the tank voulume do you not need to do water changes?

Umm, well.....Thats another topic of discussion. Now, being that I'm going to take it your asking me, I'll answer it this way. I only do water changes every 3-4 months based on the needs for Trace Elements. Now, I could go longer if I dosed those, but I don't. I dose Vodka to keep the Trates at a low level, along with my Sump. So, my answer to this would be as follows: If your water quality is still good, why change it. AS long as yoiu have nothing out of line parameter wise, I say, leave it alone.
