thanks, I'm trying to solve several questions, such as one huge sump or several smaller ones under a section of tanks. Several smaller ones would be cheaper from the start, as in as more money is produced new sections with sumps can be added. One large one would have to be mortified every time a new section is added.

Also trying to debate if I'd want to keep 55 gal drums in the room as well, like in a closet. Each drum would be distilled, treated tap water. which has a small pvc pipework to the sumps. Over each sump is a valve to add more water, turn the valve, water flows.I know exactly how to set this up, just I'm unsure. The 55 gallon drum would be sealed so water doesn't evaporate. Then every so often, I'd simply fill them back up.


plus I need to design a setup so if power goes out, heaters will run in all tanks as a backup method. Easy in my mind but it adds up with costs. Need to figure out how much energy to run and how long it'll last on a battery pack.

Designing my 120 setup for my bedroom... send me ideas if you have any. Tank will house Endler's.
