ok i like what you have drawn up the only mods i would make would be to put your rubble in the refugium and add a skimmer to the in section other wise i like number 1.... another option for ease of management would be try to put the heater in the fuge also just my opinion....
I was thinking about putting rubble in both. I guess you didn't notice, but i stated the skimmer was on the wall you said it should be in that design. It was kinda cut off. I prefer the 3rd, but thanks for your opinion. I am gonna talk to the manager that I know really well about this at my LFS.
i wouldnt put rubble, but thats me. personally if im going to put any rock its just 1. the reason i do this is because the rubble in a slow flowing area is just as bad as having a sump full on bio balls on a saltwater tank.
the inlet on picture one, you can have this coming straight in, pref. underwater to limit splashing and noise, but you dont need a 90 on the end.
So it would be 1 in the refugium and nothing in the entrance?
yea you dont need anything in the entrance, that is unless thats where you have to put your heater(s) or carbon/phosban reactors etc. if theres room but i wouldnt put anything in the entrance if this was my sump.
i would put the 1 piece of rock and some chaeto for your macro algae in the refugium, i wouldnt do caulerpa or any others for that matter, and prob a 6 inch sand bed in the refugium area but again thats if this was my sump.
I do have rowa that I might need to put there, but that's about it.
