hey can you please explain to me what a sump is and how it works I got a small sump with my sw tank but I don't know how it works thanx in advance
It increases the total water volume of the system. In Saltwater tanks, the more water volume, the more stable the water parameters will be. It is also good that it hides equipment like a protein skimmer and heater. It also enables a person to add more LR to the system and have it hid, so as not to limit swimming space in the display tank. Have you ever had a Saltwater tank before? You will need to start doing a lot of research and reading up on SW, before you really start setting up the tank, if this is your first one.
yap it is my first one
HI Werner, Sumps can be set up in many ways, I found this link helpfull, its in 3 parts.
