SKAustin's Reef Diary
Ok, folks. Things are beginning to move forward with the reef tank. The first signs of progress, Ive completed my Sump/Refugium.
Salty water is expected to hit the tank in about 2 weeks. WOO HOO!
wow that is a nasty sump. Your an exelent handy man. actualy i have been having bubbles problems in my new tank so i thinki will turn my sump into somethink like that. How did you attach the glass to the tank? I heard silicon doesent stick?
did you get my pm?
Big Steve I like your crafty sump. Only 1 quick question before disaster. Your water line will be about 2" from the top. Have you thought about insurance area if the power ever fails? I'm betting $1 tonight that in the event of a power failure your sump will quickly overflow. I don't mean to play devil's advocate but I would really hate to see the post about flooding your carpet and know I never said anything.
Yeah he has a battery backup for the pump.
But seriously, Thanks for the heads up.
here's a look at the plans with measurements.
One note, the measurement for the inlet is actually 5 1/2", the bubble trap is an additional 1 7/8", so the First section should read a width of 7 3/8".
are you gunna do a skimmer?
Yes, Skimmer will be installed in the inlet area of the sump.
Silicon was pretty much made for glass so if thats what you used then it should never come off.
Lets see some water!!!!!!!!!!!
You asked for it!
