Rear view

Smaller than the "F" series, this sump is 26" x 16" x 16" and will house a skimmer with a 9" x 12" footprint. The refugium zone is 7" wide, and holds 5.5g


Sump Model Le


The Model Le sump is a larger version of the two section sump. It is designed with a skimmer section and a return section.

20" x 20" x 16" - Skimmer zone 9" wide | Return zone 7.75" wide.

Bubble tower included.  If a 4" sock hanger is preferred, that can be installed by request.


Sump Model S


The Model S sump is a simple design that will fit under smaller systems.
With two zones, it is designed to hold the Protein Skimmer and heaters
on one side, and the return pump and small add-on reactor in the other

20" x 15" x 14"

This rimless design is good to be able to work in smaller sumps, but some salt-creep may be experienced.

The Model M sump is designed for cube-shaped reefs and fits nicely in the stand. The refugium
zone spans the entire front, with the skimmer and return zones in back. The skimmer zone (rear left) has a bubble tower and probe holder, and the return zone has a top off switch bracket. Sumps come as pictured, including two 1" slip bulkheads to simplify installation.

Having the refugium in the front showcases the macro algae and pods, illustrating the benefit of natural flitration via photosynthesis to others.

20" x 16" x 16" - $325

20" x 20" x 16" - $350

If the bubble tower takes up too much space, a filter sock can be installed instead to accomodate a protein skimmer's footprint. See the additional images for examples. If you need a custom size, ask via Contact Us.
