can somebody tell me what are the benefits of a SUMP, I have a 30 gallon marine tank right now,you can check my profile for further info about my tank.thank you!hope to hear from anybody soon...
Sumps increase water volume making the tank more stable.
They provide a place to hide some of the equipment like heaters and skimmers.
They can house an refuge for macro algae which will help stabilize the water more.
The return pump creates flow in the main tank.
They can skI'm the surface gunk off the main tank.
I think those are the main reasons. I can't think of others right off the top of my head right now.
I was treating my tanl with ICH,so far some people already helped me treat the ICH, I raised the temp to 83 which I will maintain in about 3 weeks, change water, feed my fishes with garlic, maintain a stable environment to the fish,check the harmfull ammonia,nitrites and nitrates along the PH too...
so do you think I am doing the right thing now?thank you
