    I have a Triton 44 that I haven't installed yet. It will be replacing my DIY 40g sump. I plan to make the switch after the holiday's. I am very happy with build quality. The skimmer section is a bit on the small side. Be sure to check the dimensions to make sure there is enough room for your skimmer.

    I would second guess it guys/gals. I bought the BRS Triton 44 Trigger System designed for the Triton method. Although the refugium area is big (20gals) I have had nothing but problems with pieces of Chaeto clogging the drain holes from Refugium to skimmer area. Today, after reading on one of these forums here at R2R, I cut out 2 egg crates and zip tied them infront of adjustable baffle to skimmer area So far so good but had to sacrifice about 3" of refugium space. I am thinking of cutting (hate to do it) out the acrylic tank pieces that is between both lower and opening area coming from drain area - So I can clean the area and also thinking of putting some 4" socks on until my Chaeto grows fuller.

    Thanks for the heads up. I haven't installed my Triton 44 yet. The Chaeto is clogging the slots between the refugium and the skimmer section even with the algae blocker in place?

    some of my chaeto would sit on bottom when it finally floated pieces went under blocker and clogged the slots. Also, thanks to these forums, I’ve learned I need a power head in Refugium even with return pump pushing 3150gph. Chaeto just wasn't getting enough flow to tumble. I ordered another 1lb of chaeto online. I would suggest having a large amount to start with because "that is the Triton Way". Otherwise you might have the mess I'm dealing with. - Just my 2 cents

    Did you keep/use the lid they provide for your refugium when in operation?
