Wet/Dry sump redesign, help me out JT

Post by damselkiller » Sat Jun 09, 2012 3:22 pm

Okay, im counting on JT to help me with this one, but all other input or suggestions will be greatly encouraged. So here we go, the water feeds in from the far right, goes into the "skimmer"... and now im planning on it trickling through the activated carbon filter, through the cheato, and then pumped back into the tank. will this work???

okay first thing i see wrong is were your carbon is going, if you have a carbon filter there no light will be able to get to the cheato.
i would move the carbon to the left or right in a free flowing area.
other than that looks like a good setup
