    Yes, it's a simple solution that works easily. You can place it where you like, and change it later if need be.

    One on each side is fine, like I explained in your blog. The overflow in the center works well, but you do need to see if you get any dead spots from time to time. Simply look up at the surface and see if the water is nice and clear across the entire surface area, or if you see what looks like an oil slick. If you see them, change the orientation of your returns or move the overflow to help suck that stuff away so the surface stays clean.

Keeping my tank at a proper temp

by Jkohuts on 05-04-2010 at 12:40 PM
so Im having trouble maintaining the temperature at 79 in my 55 gallon with 20 g sump with about 15 g of water in it. Im running 1 150 watt in the return section and 1 100 watt heater in the 2.5 refugium. and 1 100 watt heater in the overflow section of my sump am I better off having one heater or 2? or is more the better? should i have one in the tank?

I completly redesigned my sump and replumbed my whole system will post pics when its completly finished

So im truly addicted to my reef

by Jkohuts on 04-28-2010 at 10:52 PM
So ive convinced my self my tank just dosent have enough flow.... ive plumbed it with 1/2 cpvc and the pump im using is a via aqua 3300 which does 977 an hr but at 4ft head which is how tall my stand is. There are two returns that go into the tank on either side and the over flow is in the middle. The overflow im using is a is a HOB which does 600 hr, but because of all the right angles I have used in the 1/2 i dont thing there is even 600 going through there. Does anyone have any suggestions
