Design my sump...


Recommended Posts

I'm overhauling my 220 to add a 90 gallon glass sump and co2. It will be almost exclusively epiphyte plants. What is the best design for the sump? I'm thinking of including two small sand filters in the sump, matten filter, UG and sponges. 


Anyone make a suggestion/link.  



Thanks in advance.

If I had the room / means to setup a sump I would:

1. Filter socks (large particle size)
2. Foam in various sizes (Coarse / Medium / Fine)
3A. More filter socks, but smaller particle size
3. fine particle pads
4. floating bed media / refugium
5. media storage (sintered glass variety)
6. Exit pump / thermometer / co2 dosing / dosing chamber
