    Default DIY refugium plans... basic!!!

    Just drew these up... they're pretty self explained, but ask if you have questions.
    There's nowhere else I'ld rather be... unless, of course, you're buying

    Great thread Repto,the design is a very effective one and should be used by all who are looking to design their own sumps.The direct overflow feed to the skimmer box has many benefits.It provides a stable water level,it gives the skimmer access to the concentrated organics coming from the overflow.These 2 designs will greatly increase your skimmate production.Thanks for taking the time to draw this up

    I think the plans were attached and lost during the forum move a couple years ago. This thread is an oldie.
