    Sump tanks

    Hey guys can anyone see a problem with me having a 40 gallon breeder tank as my sump on my 210 gallon tank

    My plan:
    -Use all 4 overflow pipes as return drains to sump.
    -Return pump will be ecotech L1

    Only issue I see is the amount of flow going thru the sump. You need some dwell time to get the use of a sump. I'm using an L1 on my tank for return and it drives all my reactors and refugium.

    You'll be surprised how far you'll have to cut it back. Mine runs about 70%.
