    Default My First Project Log

    Woo Hoo!! Im finally starting my Nano Reef. I got the stand figured out(thanks walmart), and drilled the tank this afternoon. Is it usual to break the first one? Also how long do the bits last? Anyway as soon as i get a new 10 for the sump i will start on it. Ive got my ideas ready, thanks to jojo, and now just waiting for those paychecks to come in.

    Just cut off the return? Also how much flow is your return pump? Ive read a lot about putting to much flow through the sump. I was going to run about 200 for the return and T off the fuge, and a maxi jet 900 in the tank(around 240 i think). Any opinions?

    I wust a Catalina Aquariums 1200 for my return. I also have an aquaclear 10 and 30 in my tank. I am thinking about dooing a return manifold. Might be something to look into as it would be easier before you get the tank wet.

    The sump is usually not drilled, I don't know if you have a great idea in your head or if that was the broken one just to show your set up but just thought I'd pass along that info!!

    Thanks spookey

    jojo-Yes it is the broken one. I cracked it the first time then did a practice hole after that. What is a return manifold, like a closed loop? I need around 300-400 turn over right?

    Kind of like a closed loop. Look at Iconz "it's nanotime" thread he did a great job on his!! You could run a 9o but IMO an oveflow is better.
