  3. Freshwater sump plumbing

    I go 3/4" partially for flow control because i have the max flow calculated for diameter and length and bend. Also because dursos at 3/4" are very quiet. The water change over is crazy. I run trickle towers on my sumps. Then baffled to a big refugium full of lava rock and the heaters then...
