Yes of course you where planning on two pumps then having it that way makes more sense. You can also have one strong pump drive two outlets..
Well I have 2 wavemakers in the tank yet, the more I can get rid off the better.. But I am planning one outflow just yet. Was wondering where to place it. The sump will be on the left side of the tank near the rear as thats the only place I don't have a lot of room on the back. So I think the outflows best position is on the left side to the front of the glas?
Ah, I didn't see your wave makers in your FTS image - I was wondering how you would get sufficient flow and distribution with a single outlet on a 1500 tank, but that explains it. I definitely want two inlets, to I can send fresh fully CO2 laden water to both the front of the tank, and the rear.
I'm not sure about a trickle filter, don't think its needed for a planted tank and I'm a wary of the noise.
Doesn't the trickling makes your water cool faster?
Am doing a water change and something has caught my attention.. I have a steel in and out take but wat if a cut off the outlet I have two inlets one higher and one lower.. Kinda waste for an outlet but could be handy for the sump right? Just a thought..
finding clear corners
No this is an reactor, the valves will not close. The reason of the valves is to regulate the flow trough each pipe the reactor operates optimal around 900l/h the pump can be set to 3000l/h.. I probably won't run full speed but I have the option to fine tune everything and always have room to increase or decrease the overall flow in the tank..I've not set anything like this up but just a thought re the co2 diffuser. Will the ball valves be controlled along with the Co2 solenoid so that the bypass closes when the co2 is on?
If not, is there a chance most of the water will just go through the none diffuser pipe as it will be the path of least resistance?
So I ordered the pvc will be in next week or so..
Now I have to determine where the inflow has to come, I have two pipes one higher and on lower.. I think that the first drawing is the best option, but I have to drill holes in the table for that so if it's there it is for good..
Any thoughts or other option on this?
