what size sump?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

What will be the smallest sump u guys will use for a 6x2x2 most probably using a 2000L/hr submersible pump. will make 2 of these http://www.aquarticles.com/articles/man ... nging.html as it is impossibleto drill the tank in its current location.

am thinking to make a sump of 6ftx13"(w)x8-9"(h) as the space under the cabinet is only around 14" high, so i think 8-9" is a reasonable high for room to take out the media for cleaning.

do u guys think this size is good enough? and the 3-4" will get me enough room for cleaning?

thanks in advance.
