Sumps are beneficial additions for both fresh and saltwater aquariums. In the most basic terms, a sump is an additional receptacle plumbed inline via a Siphon Overflow box, or bulkheads in pre-drilled aquariums. It will provide additional space and increase the total volume of water in an existing system. Sumps can be as basic as a supplementary aquarium, a large plastic container, or as part of a more elaborate wet/dry trickle filter or refugium. With some basic plumbing techniques, a sump can be installed to most aquariums to provide numerous benefits.
Additional Space for Equipment
A sump benefits an aquarium by providing extra usable space. Think of it as an "add-on" to your existing aquarium. It is the ideal location for equipment such as heaters, thermometers, and protein skimmers. Since most people keep a sump beneath the main aquarium or hidden from view, equipment that can clutter or obstruct aquarium viewing can be neatly tucked away.
Quick Setup Guide NOTE: The Eshopps Wet Dry Filter requires an appropriately sized submersible return pump. The maximum flow rate of the pump must match the maximum flow rate of the overflow box for proper operation.
Don't take the quality of your tap water for granted. If you draw your water from a well, nature may not be providing you the perfect balance. If you are using tap water from your municipal department, it likely includes minerals and additives.
Algae are prolific and opportunistic organisms that take advantage of aquarium systems that are out of balance. Water quality issues create ideal conditions for algae. This article explains how proper water quality helps control algae.
