Cool

bonjour2, first of all. You intend to place ur sump in the cabinet or you are using wrought iron 2 tier stand? I dun know anything about calculations but I can tell you what I did to my system before.

Try to custom made your sump tank big enough to go in your cabinet if you are having a cabinet. I had my sump tank made at 2.5ftx1ftx1ft to nicely fit into my cabinet.

I had my main tank 3ftx1.5ftx1.5ft drilled 1 25mm as overflow & 1 20mm as return with a glass compartment. No problem encountered. (Without a glass compartment is rather dangerous. Live stock might get suck in or the overflow pvc hole got stuck?)

Like all bros said. There's no too big or too small for the sump tank. I believe it's up to you what you gonna to have in ur sump. Your setup quite similar to mine. I made the sump tank with 3 compartments:

1st compartment, 4" length for mechcanical filter.
2nd compartment, 16" length for DSB compartment.
3rd compartment, 10" length for holding my weipro 2012 & 2 pumps.

Go for a 3ft sump tank if you are using wrought iron 2 tier stand. (Just my opinion)

Hope this helps you abit.

Thanks all for your tremendous replies. Okay Bro Devilfire ,what is meant by p/p ? If it is the pipe , there is only one hole drilled at 20mm as the overflow pipe , and I intend to use a 2 pump system in Sump( one for weipro , one for return pipe)

Bro Jeff, w/o the glass compartment would be aright imo , if you been to cck ff oppo Farmart , there's one fs setup exactly like what I intend to do.

I am using Fish stand btw.

Here is a pic of my skimmate after 2 days, weipro 2012 using weipro 3000 (2500L/H), not very impressive, quite waterry.

In order to adjust the water level to the bottom of the cup, I need to almost close the outlet valve. Which means it can take much more flow without overflowing. I estimated 3500L/H will still be safe. Of course it is an estimation.

Here is a pic of my sump. It is a 24"x12"x16" tank.

Very simple, the downflow is directed to the container at the leftwhich contains filter media. and at the right is a pump that pumps water up. And a skimmer of course.

The dead corals have no purpose, just can't find a place to store them hehe... The same goes with the sand. I intend to get a container to store the sand and make it into a mini DSB, may or may not help.
