"And you find a single 32" sump is enough capacity to support the 3 beds? Is your fish tank elevated from the sump/ground level? Do you have your sump feeding both the GB and FT at the same time? Or do you pump to fish tank and let that…"
"I was referring to siliconing the outer ring of the cap. By all means use the center for your bell siphon. The system in that video is a 1 tank system...that was my first system setup. I found that the deeper GB was the way to go. My GBs are…"
"@Jeff - The most widely used and referenced video for IBC conversions seems to be this guy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WYFM7J_TpTU. I see your suggesting that I silicone over the cap rather than use it for my bell siphon - something you learned…"
