can do mate...
half weir with a bodge durso stand pipe , currently incrusting the weir with montipora goes down into sump is 30x12x15. biggest i could fit under the stand.
first bit ive got my bubble magus nac 7 and my 300w aquaone heater and i somtimes use my rowa bags as filter socks on the outlet as i use a reactor so dont need um.
second section is cheatomorpha with a 6500k 45w big green lamp , best sump light ive used.
3rd section is the return pump aqua medic ocean runner 3500 and the little newjet400 for my phosban reactor with 100ml of rowa i change it every 4weeks.
then i got my tec 1ng going into the sump for alk, mag and calcium done manual for the moment but calcium is catching up on me so antother tec 1 is needed i think.

other than that i vodka dose , just started mixing sugar to see if it does any think good or not. lowerd my dosing tho cause i think its a bit of a cyano causer unfortntly , but in my old fowlr system it got my nitrate from 80ppm to zero so im sticking with it.

i use all ati bulbs for main tank , and a desk fan for extra cooling
and flow ive got 2x hydor 4 and 2x hydor 3 , its good but i would like a wave affect

all details i can think off hope its not to much
