Looking to set up a new tank and i want to get some advice on how best to use the sump (it'a an EAmarine 1000 with the AIO sump in the back http://www.evolutionaqua.com/aquariums/assets/eamarine1000---manual.pdf
The baffle between sections 4 and 5 has now been removed (since I already have a larger RO tank so didn't see the need to keep this) so section 4 is actually the full width of 4+5)
My plan is to run my skimmer in section 2 and a small reactor in section 4/5 for carbon and phosguard. But i also have the following questions:
1. I would like to run some Seachem Matrix in a filter bag or similar. Section 3 would seem like the logical place for this, but would i be able to put this in section 4/5?
2. The reason i would like to put the matrix in 4/5 is that it would be pretty cool if i could put my Cheato in section 3. I currently have it running in an external H2Ocean reactor but if i could get put the Cheato in the actual sump, it would mean one less thing hanging over the back of the tank.
Would this actually work? Or am i being daft?
