    For you guys that run red sea refer 350 can you post pictures or tell me how did you modify your sump to accommodate for a Triton refugium without actually buying a brand new sump in the place of the original one because money is the issue and I do wanna keep the original one and just wanna find a way to modify and change it to accommodate the need to run the Triton.

    Thank you

    I use egg crate to divide the skimmer section. Running like this since the start about 10 months ago. I only added the ATO refugium in last 2 weeks.

    How do you guys think this will work, trying to keep the stand clean? But also want room to add another ATO eventually and possible a doser, so want to keep as much space as I️ can. I️ will mount the jebao powerhead controllers on once I️ decide I️ want to keep it. Waiting for my Deltec skimmer but all other equipment is. It is not mounted the power strip is holding it tight to the back of the stand

    Does the egg crate wall go all the way down to the bottom of sump? Any macro algae flowing over to skimmer section?

    Also what is reason behind running the ato refugium return directly to skimmer section vs the main refugium?

    Yes, the eggcrate wall goes all the way to the bottom. Algae grows through the egg crate, but not much and it is easily pulled out. The algae doesn't flow freely, so it does not make its way into the skimmer section.
    There is no reason for the ato refugium flowing into the skimmer section. It is not something that I planned, except to put the pipe towards the back to allow more clearance for access to the sump area.

    I probably have space to replace the RSR 170 with the RSR Peninsula 500 if I get lucky ;)

    That looks clean. I’m getting ready to order a Red Sea 750 XXL and I’m trying to convince the wife on the white base.

    White is the cleanest IMO in a room, especially if you want to maintain a bright airy look. Something as large as a 750 is going to have quite a dark black base, it'll dim the room down quite a bit and make things feel smaller. If you have an ultra grandios room, that's OK I guess. My build thread as a lot more photos of the whole system.
