    questions on how to finish my sump

    Hi am new to the form

    I have 2 90 g I am trying to set up and all I have left is the plumbing. and I am not sure what plumbing pieces I have to get.

    This is what I have

    2 90 g tanks drilled

    each tank has 1.5" bulkheads on them there are 2 on each tank

    2 ocean runner 6500 return pumps

    berlin turbo skimmer good for up to 300 gph approx 24" high

    100 lbs of live sand

    100 lbs of live rock

    1 x 48" pc light fixture 4 bulbs 65 w each I am going to upgrade this soon.

    the stand is 2 x 4's doubled up with alot of metal braces and 2.5" screws it is approx 24"x 48"x 18" the average size of a 90 g.

    the holes are on the back side of the tank 6" from either side and from the top
    on both tanks I will take pics later to night and add them to give all of you and idea.

    I am thinking that I have to modify the stand to fit the other 90 g in the bottom and to have the height required to fit the skimmer.

    the object I am trying to do is have the one 90 as the main display tank and then have the other 90 g as a temporary sump and have a bubble sock onit which I will clean every other day the tank will also have some cheto in it to help reduce the bubbles and nitrates.

    I hope this is enough info for you to help me out if yuo need some more specifics please feel free to ask and I will do my best to give that info to you.

    Thank you so much for your time and your info.

    Does everybody agree that I have everything I need for the tank set up and all I have to do is modify the stand and get the plumbing parts together.

    here is the list of plumbing parts I need does this look like the right amount everyone.

    on the plumbing part, here is a list of what you need (estimation) so please excuse me if there is some parts missing lmk ok.

    for the overflow to sump:
    2xTee slip/slip 1.5"
    A few (let say 10) 90 degrees Elbow 1,5" slip/slip
    PVC pipe 1.5"
    Male adapteur 1.5" male/slip (if your bulkhead are threaded)

    Return to tank:
    Check valve 1"
    true union ball valce 1"
    Female adaptor 1" female/slip (to fit your size pump)
    90degrees elbow 1" slip/slip ( a few)
    PVC pipe 1"

    That should be ok. Hope it helps, please feel free to ask me more questions!

    Thanks Richard i2ik of worldfish fourm
