  • Sump design and reactor placement

    Just wondered if the reactor should be before or after the skimmer?
    At this stage the new sump, which must be small, will have the first chamber with the skimmer in it, with an overflow baffle to keep steady level for the skimmer. Then the second chamber will house the reactor and the return pump. Passive carbon probably in the first chamber with the skimmer, as there will be little flow in the second chamber.
    That any good?

    Hi Alastair, your arrangement is exactly as Alexander"s & mine The skimmer before the zeo-filter. In this manner the mulm from the pumping gets to the corals & not first to the skimmer. Bob

          Jeff, that's not necessary, there's more than enough "duff" to go around Bob
