    Why is it I can't see anything on this post and sometimes other posts as well?
    Obviously others are seeing as they are commenting on the picture/diagram.

    this thread was started in December 04', the pictures are gone., probably removed by the poster from whichever online photo hosting site they were stored on.

    if you have some questions about sumps and refugiums, try starting a new thread and we will try our best to help you :b16:

    Jesse, you should post in the forum called Sponsor Request.
    if you want a cheap sump, you can use those storage bins sold at many stores.. or use a smaller tank. if its custom, a few guys here can build acrylic sumps for you to the exact size you need.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    Smile Help Needed

    Wow very nice design,
    I am BRAND new to Salt Water Hobby and I am totally clueless where to begin. I got the 75Gal tank with 4 370G/per hr pumps and 1 protein skimmer and one Canister filter. Now I am planning to have a Sump as well before I start a tank and add in water and fishes. I was also wonder what fishes do you consider beginner fishes? How do I start things? Help please:b3:

    You should consider reading a book or 2 before starting in the hobby. you will make wiser choises and in the long run wont cost as much.

    The canister filter can be used for charcoal only.. unless you intend to clean the filter floss daily as they become pollution factories within days.

    what do you intend to keep ? fish only or corals, if corals, which types ?
    your current and lighting will vary alot depending on your options.
    Lately, Im starting to recommend t5's only for a few reasons, heat, t5's hability to grow any corals ( given quality lights and reflectors ) price of bulbs as well as cheaper hydro.

    Your on the right path if you decide to run a sump from the start congrats! Many people do not, and regret it after.

    as for the books, see this one:

    these will give you loads of information and awnsers to your questions

    dont be afraid to ask as well, we are here for that.

    beginner fish are usually damsels and clownfish.
    be aware that damsels are usually quite evil and will harass fish on the long run.. so maybe start with clownfish.
