29 Gallon Sump

29 Gallon Sump

ChrisOaty
Overflow from the display tank is over the rear left chamber, consisting of a full valved siphon chanel, open chanel, and emergency chanel. Turbulence drives a moving bed filter with K1 media, then over a weir and down a similarly shaped chamber with two eggcrate levels to hold filter media in the front left. The flow is then dumped into the main chamber from the bottom which houses a 5" deep sand bed and eggcrate racks for frags. The main chamber overflows down a roughed up plastic canvasand (algae scrubber) then hits a small horizontal piece of glass and a matala mat to damper water fall, reduce micro bubbles, and prevent light bleed from the LED array into the main chamber. Internal or external pump, pushes water back to display out the bottom rear of the sump. #29_gallon #algae_scrubber #deep_sand_bed #sump
