    Does anybody have any opinions on this sump?

    I say donít over think it. Personally I have a love hate relationship with them.

    I just want a large body of water that is relatively quiet.

    On one of my frag tanks I use a 40g breeder, drains and skimmer at one end, return pump at the other. I have ulva and gracilaria in a basket in between. No bubble traps.

    On another I use a 75g stock tank. Pretty much same as above. No bubble traps.

    Both systems have ATO.

    But Iím about being cheap lol..and I realize your going for a nice look whereas mine is out in my man cave.


    Donít laugh my plumbing plans changed mid stream...


    Old pic, only thing that has changed is swapping out to larger skimmer, add live rock and macro algae.

For me does sumps are cost effective for a tank less tank 150gallons... but thatís just what I think

    I agree baffles are overrated. I’m normally not one for a fancy sump, and usually DIY my sumps with 40/B’s. I figured this time I may treat myself. I just don’t know. I love those Synergy Sumps, but the one I want is lacking a fuge. :-(

    The filter cups are interesting. Do you have a pic of that sump in action?

    I have been trying to find a filter cup that will work with the Precision Marine R24 sump so I wont have to use filter socks anymore. So far I have not found one that will .

    Man, let me tell you. Those new PM sumps are nice. Made out of all cast Acrylic. Will definitely last forever.

    So how do filter cups work to replace socks? I haven’t seen one in action yet.

    Just measured my available sump space. It’s exactly 41” from wall to wall.

    BUT.....I’ll have rather Large Panduit Cable/ wiring raceways on each wall that stick out 3”. That’s 6” total which brings the available space to 35”.

    So my sump will have to be 34” long. The raceways are big, but I’ll be able to hide almost all of my wiring and easily access my plugs. Will be easy to change or clean equipment. So to me it’s worth it. I’ll post some pictures later on my build thread.

    The 34Ē will barely slide in here. Had this been a larger tank Iíd probably run those American DJís / raceways horizontally at the very top. They wonít fit on 18Ē width and I doubt theyíll fit on a 24Ē width.

    I have a 34" Trigger emerald sump under my 4ft wide 130g and it has a fuge. I keep the tank 10" from the wall and my ATO tank sits between the wall and the stand so it is hidden. It would not fit under the tank with the sump and dosing bottles.
    I sure do like the looks of the SynergyReef products!
