  1. the smaller the sump the smaller the system , get out the back of a big set up , if your lucky u might see a drum filter in operation , u can never have enough filtration , but u can under do it
  2. 10 ooo litres in a 4ft sump , and you want good water , this is the funniest thing ive ever ever ever ever ever ever and yup ev er read , the slower the water goes through a sump the better , 3 to 5 times the volume of the tank water to be filtered/per hour is the best , you go quicker it doesnt get the best results ,10 000 litres in 4 ft sump thats a raging torent, ie if u had a uv in line from you sump returning to your tank with the flow rate you described you may as well turn off the uv , or buy the biggest you can get , and tripple it up , 10 000 litres in 4ft sump , haaaaaaaaaaaaaahehaaaaaaaaaa just because 4 litres of matrix will filter 400 gallons , doesnt mean it works flat out , you could fill a 4ft sump with matrix but dont mean nothn , a steady to moderate flow is best , how can the media break down bacteria when its going so fast , rocket science , hence the amount of crap sumps ive seen , recently got one of joshalon with a setup and it had 2 dividers in a 3ft sump ???? wheres the rest of the media go , and he had it built by APPARENTLY a person who thought they knew what they were doing , wnhen i saw the sump i couldnt stop laughing , they even patched a crack in the sump , and the sump was an old tank , so funny so true and thats right joshalon paid for the sump/custom , what a rort , thats why canisters work the way they do of a certain flow rate go figure , more rocket science, cheap canister cheap results , dearer canister brand bigger housing for media slower rate under pressure , gotta get back to the lab

  7. really , didnt notice , they look the same , winch up the same , and the jaws set in metasuplhate the same , chainsaw cuts through the head the same too , but i will take your word for it , just looking at the jaws and they seem to be the same , oh well , dead ones a good one , n me surfboard feels tha same way
  8. do NOT USE fluke n tapeworm on your catties it will kill them , i used the bird wormer , 25 mls to 200 litres , then panacur , 1 day latter , daily water changes on glass bottom tank , leaving no secretion material , waited 2 days then repeated , , worked well fish never stopped breeding , only lost a few small fry
