    Nice! When you get around to it take some pics and make a build thread. We love seeing new tanks.

    Just make sure that your sump can hold the additional water volume that will drain when your pump stops. I don't want you to go cut it, and then end up with 5 gallons on your floor because of me.

    I would say as close to 6 inches a possible. You might be able to go with less, if you use a ball valve to slow down the flow through the pipe. If you have a full siphon, the water will vortex just like water going down the tub drain. When the vortex hits the top of the water, you get a nice slurping sound. The 6 inches of space, gives you enough room between the pipe and the water surface that the flow through the pipe doesn't create that vortex. Hope this makes sense.

    ^This would be a nice option. Do you have a budget you are looking to stay in?

    What!?! Heck yeah! I don't win everything... Just most things. Lol

    Many options out there, but Flipper seems to be the most popular. You can look at Mag Float too. They are a little cheaper, but not by much.

    They are so cool to watch.

    I would come, especially if we are going over calcium reactors. I think I have wrapped my brain around everything, but it would still be nice to hear about it in person.

    Fo shizzle.

    Awesome! That came out nice. Glad to hear you are doing well. Double vision any better?
  20. crimsonvice

    I'm in.
  21. crimsonvice

    I don't think you are in the right place to be tasked out of building a big tank. Lol Go big, or go home!
  22. I'm thinking about this.
  23. crimsonvice

    Is this what I think it is??? .... C'mon man.... Can't you do that on your own time?

    You want a good 6+ inches between these two pipes, otherwise you will get the swirling vortex of noise. Here is a diagram and link to a good write up about Herbie overflows. http://gmacreef.com/herbie-overflow-reef-tank-plumbing-method-basics/
