So I'm in the process of building a 200g system. 125g display tank with a 75 gallon sump. Display is 6 ft long sump is 4 ft long. I did a lot of research on my system but that doesn't mean I know what I'm doing. I would love to hear plusses and minuses to my set up and what you guys would change. Like to hear feed back so speak up. I am not 100% sure if my tank is tempered or not so I'm doing off over flow inside a custom over flow box. Any suggestions?? I'm also curious about my baffles in my sump does it look like my water level looks accurate. Or am I missing the whole baffle consept.

Thank you for your time and info

Your skimmer section would end up being the same height as the second (macro algae). Only way to have that would be to switch the macro and return sections and feed it from a T off the return pump, or have the macro section before the skimmer.

I'd suggest against the overflow box.
Drill the tank.
If you can't. Get a new tank.
I know that sounds silly. But i am very serious. I've done the over the side thing. And sooner or later it always fails.

Yep all 4 need to be the same height.
