    I'm in the process of setting up an Innovative Marine Fusion 20 tank and am trying to learn as much as possible. The return chamber is the largest chamber and has an area that is under chamber 1 and 2. It would seem that the water in that area would be stagnant. What would be the purpose of an area for stagnant water? Should I put anything there? Rubble live rocks?

    It's not stagnant water. It's circulating. I don't know why that area is there. I guess you could shove some rock in there if you wanted. I'm sure someone else will chime in.
