View Full Version : Looking for diagram/pics of entire setups

Great website, what a great place for Canadians.

I have been researching online for my first 150 - 200 gal marine tank with sump setup (FOWLR?). (I have a 110g FW tank). I have found lots of links to the various sub systems of the overall design (tank design, sump/filtration, RO and water top off etc), but very little showing the big picture of the whole system, with diagrams and pics. I plan on buying one of the recommended books next time I'm in the city, not sure if that will help.

I want to place the main tank in the living room, and a large sump etc one floor down, with an auto RO water top off.

Could anyone point me to a link with diagrams/pics of various entire systems. The diagram is important, as obviously the whole setup won't fit in one pic.

Thanks, Tom.

Hey Tom, this isn't a diagram per say, but it has lots of 'tank diaries' in it which you may find helpful.


Here's an example:


Just go through the forum and you'll find some good threads.

Hope that helps.

This is also a really good place to look around and ask questions. MOJO reef (Mike O'Brien) is a plumbing guru and really helped me to design a closed loop system.
