filter profiles.
i put this here as i figured there would probably be more traffic. :)
i was wondering this morning about this idea.
peoples filters,now some of us may have the same,and some of us don't.
i wondered if anyone would be interested in doing a picture profile of their filters ?
i don't know if this has been done here,i havnen't seen it,if there is,no worries
we'll just dump this. :)
so before i take any pictures and write about mine,what does everyone think ?

i like it. heres mine:

40 breeder sump/refugium on my saltwater tank.
the chamber to the far right is the skimmer section. i had an insump ASM skimmer in there to begin with but now use an out of sump one. this is where the pump is that feeds my skimmer, which is a mag24. there also is an inlet draining from the display. then there is a bubble trap, then return pump which is a mag 9.5 followed by another bubble trap. finally my refugium which has a clip on work light with a full spectrum bulb, chaeto macro algae, sand and 2 reactors, one carbon and the other phosban. there also is another drain line from the display going into the refugium section. ( ** the live rock you see in there now was just in there for a short time as a holding area, and i dont suggest this for anyone setting up a refuge because it traps debris and detritus )
here is my MCR-MR2 skimmer
