Hi everyone I have finished picking everything out except the sump on my new 215 build, and looking for everyone’s opinion on a custom sump, I’m thinking of going with synergy but wanted to hear other options I may not have thought about before pulling the trigger!
thanks in advance!!

I purchased this a month or so ago intending to build a 20L sump for my new 40 breeder setup. I decided to use my 20L for a coral quarantine setup instead and purchased an acrylic ready made sump instead. I installed one of the baffles and pulled it out so there is some evidence of being used...
Posting my 100 gallon mixed reef tank here. I have been at it for years but recently figured out that good lighting means I can grow more corals. Now its time to move the tank to replace the flooring in the house. Maybe I can get some tips on how to improve upon the tank. I have some great ideas.

When choosing an aquarium build, do you consider room for controller as an essential requirement?
Do you prefer a full length sump covering the whole aquarium or leave room for controller / dosing pump alike?
Does Anyone Have Information On The "Ultimate Sump"?
I remember looking through Google images of sumps back around 2018 when I came across this particular build:
The image is very similar to those on the Lifereef site, though this sump was definitely not produced by said company. I believe it...

I’m redesigning my sump. I currently have a very traditional sump. You know, filter socks, protein skimmer, refugium, and return. The result of this is a small smelly swamp. Now that I have lived with it for two years I decided that I hate refugiums I don’t know what I’m doing...

I bought a secondhand reefer 250. The previous owner rebuild the sump. Now there is extra space for more water on te right side, very lovely. However, on the spot where the water goes down into the pre-existing sump section there's a lot of noise. Does anyone have any suggestions on...
So I want to change the inside part of my overflow because I hate it, the box on the outside is fine I guess but the overflow “screen” drives me nuts, so my question is how can I change this to a normal overflow box? Is t possible? The drilled hole is 1 1/2 inches o just want a box inside my...

Cleaning my sump today and found this little thing on my skimmer. I have only seen one once before in my tank a hand full of months ago and it was between a frag shelf and the glass. (which I got rid of) It looks almost like a vein or root that definitely gets larger over time...
How often does everyone clean their sump?? And how? Do you incorporate a water change (drain it), then scrub it clean??
i need some more thoughts and ideas. I’ve always kept a dirty sump, but now that i have a new and nicer tank, i want to keep it nice and clean.
Hi everyone! About a week ago I had to unexpectedly move, but this was the perfect excuse for a tank upgrade! I ordered a 22 Gallon Low Iron Rimless Glass Tank by Mr. Aqua! My older brother helped me build a tank stand and set up a sump as quickly as we could! My stand blueprints were put...
