a diagram of what i want to do, on teh right is a 46 gallon ank attached to a 10 gallon wet/dry filter ith live rock and sand, i want to attach my 20 gallon hexagon about 6 ft away from my 46 gallon aganist my wall in my rom. so i thought i can attach my wet/dry filter to a home made sump made out of a 10 gallon tupperware box and then put a pumpo in it and make the 2 gallon and the 46 allon part of the same system so i have a total of 86 gallons of water. in the 46 gallon i have about 25-30 pou nds of live rock and a very effective seaclone protein skimmer with two maxi jet 1200's with t5 lighting and a 3 12 inch sand bed give or take half an inch , 3-4" . in the 20 gallon ihave no protein skimemr yet and a hang on filter which seems to do the job which i clean on a regular basis. i feel in doig this it will make maintenance easier and water cvhanges easier to maintain and the water morestable. be able to does my supplements better and just better overall performance ni my tanks. any input will be apreciated or any links on home made sumps would be great.
