New sump for my deep blue 30 reef
Couldn't find a bigger sump to fit my stand so I went to work on making my own and with that I was able to fit everything I wanted in the sump and gain hopefully quite a bit more water volume over the standard 10 gallon sump I'm running right now. So looking at the sump front left will be my drain and skimmer area it flows into a small frag section then into a refugium and finally into the back left corner my return pump will be able to be piped straight up with no bending in the piping to get as much gph as possible. I added a probe holder in the skimmer box section. On the far right of the sump is my 4 gallon fresh water top off section so no more lifting juga and filling the tank manually. I think it turned out pretty good besides some sharpie runs from the weld on glue but that's ok. Won't see it soon enough.
