What's inside a sump?
Since my tank is quite small (46Gl), I created a 30 GL sump to exchange water. So far so good. Now, I wonder what needs to be added into a sump to make the better quality in water and others? So far, I removed the thermo from the main tank and put into the sump. :)
What else? mud as someone told me? or plant? what kind of plant? I have no idea about this one, please help.
Plants are rarely seen in marine. You're probably thinking of marine algae Caulerpa.:tongue:
I'm not an expert so I'll leave the sump contents recommendations to Usmc.:devil: :wink2:
I have my sump sectioned of into 3 parts. The sections are separated by pond filter media. In the first section is my protien skimmer, the second part is a live sand bed UV sterilizer, heater and some Caulerpa algea. In the third is just the pumpto return the water. Then you just buy a regular flourescent hood for the algea to grow.
