    Maintaining CO2 while using a sump

I'm going to get a custom aquarium and really wanted to use a sump for all the advantages they offer. Unfortunately, I was always filling...

    Using A Co2 Reactor In A Sump

    Has anyone had success with using a stand-alone CO2 reactor in a sump? (versus returning the water to the tank directly) I'm running a 40 gal sump beneath a 130 gal display tank, and I'm diffusing CO2 directly into the display tank using an Atomic ceramic diffuser. For purely aesthetic...

    Sump And Canister On The Same Tank

    I saw this old post from Tom Barr and I wonder why would you have both filtration systems on the same tank. If anybody has done this or has some info on how or why, I am curious.
