Hi Guys, i could really use some help.
I currently have 2 marine tanks. Both 2.5ft, one with small marine fish and inverts, the other with sea horses and inverts.
Iv been offered two 4 foot fish tanks which sit under neith one another.
I would like to make the top tank my main Marine aquarium, and use the bottom as a refugium or sump, and possibly keep my sea horses in it.
Any ideas?
I have 2 external filters, would they come in to the equation? Miricle mud? Filtraion, ? Iv never used a sump or refugium, always externals as my biggest tank is 3ft. I would like all the equipment to also go in the bottom tank.
Any help would be greatful, i have no idea where to start!

.Thank you for reading, my sea horses thank you also!

check the link in my sig, theres a lot of photos of how my system was set up. that may be of some help. I would type up a lengthy explaination for you, but I'm heading out of town tomorrow on Vacation and havent the time to type it up. See how the pics help and if anyone else can provide some useful input. I'll check the thread again when I come back from the lake next week.

Take pride in what you do, for it is a reflection of who you are.
