40 Gallon Breeder and 29 Gallon Sump

Chris O.
Hood sits atop a standard 40 gallon breeder and is fitted with a 23" x 4.25" fan-cooled heatsink. The heatsink can house an array of 3w LEDs or two 50w multi-LED chips. A second fan is added to aid in convection cooling within the hood. A 10" pvc pipe is cut in half length-wise to act as a weir at the back of the display tank and the rear glass is painted black and drilled for a full bean animal style overflow. Looking at the plumbing from the rear the pipes are as follows from left to right: return, emergency, valved full siphon, open channel. Looking at the sump from the rear, all overflow is returned in the first chaimber which will tumble K1 media in a moving bed filter, then flow over into the next chamber behind it and down through various media trays, then on to the main chaimber whith a 5" deep sand bed and a rear up-flow algae turf scrubber lit by six 3w red LEDs, then on to the return chaimber. #40_gallon #aquarium #breeder #reef #salt_water #tank
