    Default Im back CivicDemons 90gl Build

    So after things in my 125 went south and i sold everything about maybe a year or so back i have finally decided to come back and try again with a nice 90 cube i picked up. So if anyone has some rock laying around let me know. Going tog et pluming hopefully all done up this weekend, I have 4 T5 on it now that i will use for the mean time. I do how ever have a big sump and actually thinking of getting something smaller if anyone wants to trade. Here some pics.

    New Tank and stand

    Sump is 5 chamber 17D x 18 Tall x 29 L Looking for something a bit smaller like around 24 L x 14 T x 13 D

    Willing to make a trade for something in good shape. This sump is glass.

    Looks like an SCA sump. I took a razor blade to that baffle dividng the far right chamber to have more room for a skimmer on mine.

    Sure, if you don't want the fuge chamber, no need for a sump that takes up all that space.

    Sometimes I think the fun part is acquiring, designing and building the system. Interesting you did 45s on the overflow. Or the one part of it. I usually just try to straighten out the return, but I'll use what's laying around just to get her done. No valves on either?

    I was going to only do 45s on the drain also. But sump had a wall the prevented that. So I could not doit like the return. Return will eventually have a manifold type. If I Decide to add reactors. As far add valves I won't need any as sump should be able to hold any water that drains in case of a power outage.

    That's good thinking on the outage. I do the same. But sometimes you need the throttle back the return because drain can't keep up. Or the other way around. Choke the drain to make it silent. Also doing maintenance in sump area valves help keep unnecessary water in display. But to each their own. Never a fan of antisyphon valves. I think the restrict flow too much unless you go a size or two bigger to allow for the flapper. But then you have a huge chunk of PVC in there. Other than that. Throw some water in that thing.

    Should be filled up by tonight. If i need a valve to reduce flow from return line i can add that no problem being as i want to posibly make it a manifold it will be simple.

    I think you jinx me, Drain is crazy noisy in the sump with bubbles. IM like Tham it !!!! Up top its fine just down in the sump it makes a bunch of noise. i think i might take out the union and at the 45 right then straight to another 45 where the sock would be and maybe add a gate valve right in the middle in case i need to throttle it back for silence.

    What do you think ??
