Thinking of getting a sump

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I'm thinking of getting a sump for my 4x2x2 .... i've never run a sump before and just wanted to know what size would be suitable for my tank. Also what size pump and does anyone sell a complete sump? ie sump, pump, media, etc

Thanks in advance

Make your own. Or use a tank that you no longer need.

You can make them out of storage containers etc. Just do a search for DIY sumps on google.

Don't get ripped off on media such as bio balls etc either.

There are plenty of other cheap alternatives that work MUCH better. If you can find pot scrubbers they are dirt cheap and have far more surface area.

The size of the pump will be determined by how much water you want to flow.
