disadvantage ng walang sump, makalat sa nano ko. cabinet yung pinagpapatungan nya kaso may horizontal divider sa loob kaya di kasya sump, di ko alam kung posible ko sya macut ng hindi na ireremove ung 20gal


chaeto in my DIY fuge (na nakaipit sa likod ng tank / pader at nakapatong sa makakapal na styro)

hi, am a newbie again. i had a tank before but i bought the tank with the water and corals and fish with an eheim canister that was existing for 2 yrs. I handled it another 2 yrs and the glass broke one night and all was gone.. after 7 yrs.. i want to start a tank again.. this time from scratch...

may i ask how to start a reef? I just bought a tank 75 gal... havent bought any other equip yet.. can you help me how to go about? what equipment is needed? can i check your setup ? is it advisable to use canister to filter? and put small pumps inside the tank to flow the water? or a sump using a separate tank is better? i have limited space in the sala...

I posted same msg at marvin: i dont know who will respond and help:-)

thanks

It would be better if you create your own thread in the newbie section if you need dedicated help.
many experienced reefers here will help you. I am just a newbie (2 months in this hobby) so other members may be of greater help.

but to answer your question
- most of my research do not recommend canister filters for reef, using an appropriate amount of live rock for your tank size would be better.

- yes you could use pumps/powerheads/wavemakers inside your tank to generate waterflow and prevent detritus buildup

- the only thing i can advice for now is to read more here in RP or in other forums before you start purchasing anything (aside from your tank) and especially do not start a tank and add any fishes or any livestock if your tank is not yet cycled.
