I will test the wave maker next week to see whether the water gets splashed out or not. But should be okay.

Hi Ching,

Great video! I could not visualize how water flowed through the sump before, but the video demonstrated it perfectly.

How much flow do you estimate to get through the refugium?
I use Eheim 1264 pump. And this is specification:
- Pump Output: 4,500 l/h
- Delivery Head: 3.5 m
- Power Consumption: 100 W
- Dimensions: 218 x 116 x 161 mm (length x width x height)
- Weight: 4.5 kg

Tunze 6305 can be pointed down to any desire direction.
So that will not be a issue.

So, is this shown in more detail on one of the pages of the thread prior to the split then? I'd like to see any more details if possible.

Thanks guys

Wow that was a real treat thank-you!

I think a video every month is in order!

What is the white panelling done with? A plexiglass?

LOVE IT.

wow
i am always impressed
the only thing that concern me is too much pump to run the calcium reactor,kalkwasser,ozone, refugium,phosphate ,carbon and etc means too much electricity but still incredible.Personally i design mine mostly gravity feed because in southern California electricity bills are incredibly high.

As others have said, impressive how organized and neat everything looks. Equally impressive how quiet it all is to be so open. Wonderful to see.

Thanks for the video to get a glimpse how the flow of everything was going to happen. Much easier to understand now.

Incredible build ...very clean. I would watch that shrink wrap on the tank though I did that with a black acrylic stand and stored for a year when I took off the wrap it had left an etching in the acrylic somehow very noticeable and needed buffing . might be harder to see on clear but could make it cloudy . I don't know how long it took to happen but I wouldn't take a chance.

I'm building a sump similar to yours after seeing the video you provided.

So I'm wondering if your seeing any bowing in the body when it has water running in it and when it fills due to the pumps being shut off? Your observation on this is much appreciated and I love your attention to detail as I think this is rare in this hobby.

Thanks for your concern.
I already think about asking tank-maker to unwrap the plastic seal and clean the surface. Just to make sure it is super clear and no scratch.
