    I'm building out my 240g aquarium and I've dreamed up an involved, but hopefully well designed filtration setup. I'm fairly set on the concept, but I'd like a gut check on the design. Will it work? Am I overlooking something? Making an error? I have designed it so every element has a bypass as well as valves and quick disconnects for service.

    The diagram does not necessarily represent the final plumbed arrangement, it's merely a paper representation of the water path. I have included a key for the colors.

    The diagram: filter2.pdf

    The unique components referenced can be found here:

    Quiet One 9000
    Ocean Clear 375
    Heater module
    Cone Bottom Tank for FBF
    Venturi Injector

    I appreciate your feedback and advice. Thanks.
