I've been a long time reader of this forum but haven't really asked any questions before this.
The question is in regards to the set of a sump. Aquarium is a AquaOne Aqua Reef 400 running as a freshwater planted tank.
I'm having issues with the amount to particles that seem to get recirculated with my current set up.
I'm running a
200 micron sock,
followed by heater chamber,
followed by bakki rods,
followed by mini k1 being circulated by air pump and sponge filter
and finally the return pump (6000L/hr running at about 4000L/hr)
I've also got an internal Otto filter that i thought might help but haunt really (this is inside the main tank and not in chamber 6 as labelled in the first diagram)
I've included the diagram of the sump and some photos of what i have tried and a picture of the aquarium showing the fish stock levels.
Any ideas what can be changed around in the sump to get better water clarity results?
