Started building the sump. I was fitting my skimmer in and broke the pump attachment. Used some dap rapid fuse , says it bonds all plastics. Now im going to let it cure for a while and hope it works. I have the skimmer section 11.5 inches long and the fuge section
Is 6.75 inches long return section is 4 inches long. If i have to replace the skimmer i can go to the 4 inch reef octopus and make the fuge section 2 inches longer.
