Sump inlet setup

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, newbie here. I have a 6 x 2 x 2 fish tank and 4 foot sump, the fish tank has holes at the bottom for the output and input. The output is via a pipe that is a fair height into the tank (closer to the top) and the tank return is higher again (see photo). My question is is this enough to keep the tank clean? Thank you guys

I appreciate the advice, I might cut the outlet pipe to the sump slightly shorter aswell. In the first section of the sump is k1, and filter bags, going down through filter matting, back up through coral and a bag of matrix, and pack down through noodles and bio balls and more matting before going back up into the tank. I currently have an external canister filter that has purgien equivalent but will move this into a large internal filter.
