So I have never used a sump and I think I should considering how much algae I have growing in the tank and growing in my hotb filter. I have a submerged protein skimmer but it's not the best. So where do I start. I have no clue. I've watched a lot of videos but I'm still not sure of its a good idea considering how much it will cost me. I'm looking for a budget sump. How much would I need for a skimmer and a return pump. I don't know if I need a refugee right now. I'm sure they are expensive. Only thing I have found is a premade tank atm. Not sure if it's a good idea either. Might be too much for what it is. If you guys think it's easier for me to do a diy then I rather do that. Tank parameters are 24x24x24 cube. It's a 60g. I am going to do a drain to sump and return pvc that I seen from the king of DIY on YouTube. The gentleman wants 60 for the sump.
