How to make sump

Postby discus_sing » Sat Mar 05, 2016 8:53 am

Iam making new sump n replacing my old weipro skimmer to reef octupus.My tank size is 24*18*15 L*W*H respectively n sump was 24*12*15 with weipro skimmer.My problem is very quickly nitrate level goes high because of scarcity of space n skimmer n all 4 blue damsels slowly died.After this again I put 4 but in vain. After all these I changed 40 lit water but for my surprise nitrtae level next morning was again 10 mg/l .Reapeting again nitrtaes are not lowering.Now planing to make new sump of 24*18*15 n replacing skimmer for reef octupus.Can any any one suggest me sump for a small aquarium .I want to keep only 2 clowns.Earlier my sump was 1st baffle of mats 2 and skimmer n 3 rd empty.Secondly I want to know whether ceramic ball necessary.In display tank now only live sand .

I think an ATS along with skimmer will help it to stable in the water parameter.
