you can use the drain calc on the homepage... but 1 inch is more than enough. I'm getting a 120 and only having a 1.5 inch drain.

That's more than enough to go to a sump. Get your turnover from powerheads/closed loops not from sump turnover.

Some drink at the fountain of knowledge, some just gargle, but most are rabid.

Current Tank Info: 180g sps+75 softy/lps on one system tunze's, seio's, mjmods, aquacontroller w/add ons, 2X400 XM10000 and 3X160 vho actinic, 110g sump, 110 frag tank, Geo Beckett and other stuff
