    This is my gravity overflow for my 75 gal tank and it works great for me. My tank is not drilled so this is the way I had to go. It’s a diy overflow.

    What size sump does everyone recommend for my 180 gallon? I was looking at the Trigger system Ruby Sump 36. As I have a vertex alpha 170 protein skimmer and a fluval sp6 3434 gph pump. Thanks.

    Question on plumbing and parts
    I got threaded bulkheads and I’m planning on hard plumbing my sump.
    I’ve been looking at pics and want to make sure I’m getting all my parts in the right order
    Is this correct or show me a simpler way straight to the sump for the drain
