Right Im losin the plot here folks an you may pull me back or send me over the edge!!
Can you give me your thoughts on the order of filtration in a sump......
1) Mechanical Filter for big lumps of poo an suckers etc
2) Skimmer for poo and ink (wont the ink and poo happen in mech? or not all?)
3) Fuge for phosphates etc
4) carbon & antiphos agents i.e. fluidised beds
5) return pumps
The reason I ask is i notice my skimmer isnt doin much lately with a fairly well stocked tank so my mechanical filter which is first is picking up if not most of the poo (i think)
Your thoughts would be appreciated
