    Is There Anything Wrong With Running Two Pumps On A Sump?

    One pump would be in the tank and act as an overflow moving the water to the sump below with another pump in the sump to move water back to the tank.  Both are mag 950 pumps.  I just hate oveflow boxes and all overflows in general.  Right now I'm using an Eshopps 1200 overflow box, want to get...

    Are Pond Water Barrel Filters Subject To The Same Necessary Siphon Bre

    I'm thinking about converting my water barrel into a filter to replace my sump on my aquarium.  I was curious if the siphon break rules are same or different with a water barrel.  I would have a pipe going from barrel into tank for the outlet, when the pump shuts off, would that pipe be...

    Would This Crazy Idea Work?

    Been thinking about this for awhile, haven't tried it out yet, it's probably just a crazy idea, but maybe it can work?   A pump-less filter.  Like an HOB filter, but with a drain hole drilled into tank that goes into an external compartment and fills it up through media then flowing back out the...

    Will An Undegravel Filter Have Any Impact Or Interfere With An Existin

    I currently have a sump setup with overflow and seachem matrix as my filter media (4 liters) on a 75 gallon tank.  In addition, I'm setting up an undergravel filter, more like an undergravel filter on steroids.  I understand people use UG as a filter, I plan on using it more as a maintenance...
