    Sump Swap Out Aqueon Stand

    Very interesting. My stand has 2 off center supports, but it sounds like the idea is the same. I think ill add a temp support to the middle, just for peice of mind, and remove one of the off center supports, which would give me enough room to angle the sump out. Is your stand currently...

    The front is held up by 4 notched 1×6 boards held in place by 4 staples ea 2 in top and 2 in bottom the back is the same, and they have a brace board from front to back on the 2 middle supports.

    Sump Swap Out Aqueon Stand

    Ok, now i have to rethink my strategy, also some math to find out exact how much space I'll need to remove the sump from the front, I'm still guna build some kind of support, just can't bring myself to remove a support with out some sort of back up.

    Sump Swap Out Aqueon Stand

    that was my first thought, but if i remove 1 slat between the door that leaves a 40" gap between supports, now i could brace that but i would still need like 20+ inches to maneuver the sump out of the hole diagonally, maybe more, and i wouldn't really know until i was pulling it out. But on the...

    Aquasky. That's the one I have on my goldfish tank. Check the app store for an up date to get the pro setting. I run my at 100% on the schedule mentioned above, because all i want to do is look at my fish and not grow algae. And I'm using the 24" light on a 48" tank. Just depends on what you...

    I picked one of the presets and tweaked it from there. The way i started is with "tropical river" then I looked at how it had the values set and made my own. It really depends what your trying to do with your light. I wanted to keep my fish and plants happy but keep the algae growth to a...

    Freshwater Sump

    I see what your saying. I do have an emergency drain, but still not a good idea.

    Freshwater Sump

    That's a cool idea, But i don't think I'm going to add an initial baffle, just one at the end for a optional polishing pad and pretty much stick to the design that Stephan laid out for me. I like your marble sponge pre filter idea though. I was thinking of a container that was 9-10 inches tall...

    Freshwater Sump

    Not really, i got the 40b on sale from Petco for $50 it was a good deal and it fits well under my tank, i really wouldn't want it any taller.
