Here's the sump that I plan on building:
It's roughly 27" x 12" x 13" and will be fabricated with 1/4" thick acrylic. I thought Vivid's sump design with the filter socks was genius and very convenient so I decided to use it. I hope they wont mind! lol
The fuge will house some rubble rocks and a bit of Chaeto to promote pod populations and will be lit by focused Cool White LED's. The baffles for the fuge will likely be made with black acrylic. Looking to prevent light from reaching the other chambers and promoting coralline growth on the skimmer/return pump.
Leaving plenty of room up front for the reactors. The remainder of the room beside it will be used to house the RO/DI water and Calcium/Alkalinity containers, all of which I will also fabricate with acrylic.
I will hang a 600 CFM cooling fan that's roughly 10" in diameter above the sump tank. It will be controlled by the Apex and turn on when temperatures reach 82.
So, what do you guys think? Any suggestions as to what I can modify, add or delete?
