    I have a general idea of what a sump is but do u make it, set it up, or buy it, do you have to have a section of your tank cut off, cos i think that takes away from the looks. Is that what an overflow box is?

    Firstly, what are the benifits of a sump?

    Do i need one?

    can i use another tank as a sump (in the cabinet for example)?

    How do i set it up?

    If i don't have one, what do i need...

    thanks everyone!!!

    Are there any really good site with a detailed description of how to set up a sump? thanks again

    Here's part two of an article on Reef Central about sumps (Colin posted this reference earlier)

    Also have a look at Colin's Equipment List - you can find this by clicking on the Ceph Care button above.
