Hi everyone, Just wondering who here is using a sump with a "bean animal" overflow system in their Frontosa tank?
I really like the idea of the "bean animal" overflow with an internal overflow box as it is fail safe and quiet. This is my first sump/overflow project and I'd like to know what sort of flow rates are people going with in Frontosa tanks? What sump pumps are you using? What size overflow box, siphon tubes etc are you using.
I am planning on building a 185 gallon (700 litre) 6ft x 2ft x 2ft Display tank with a 60 gallon (270 litre) sump. Any help, info, hints or tips would be very gratefully appreciated.

This link has some pictures of my sump and pump on my 125 gallon tank. I have ran it for years and like it a lot. I have added a valve after the return and can adjust the flow and return of the water.
