sump solution

Mar 30, 2007
I was planning on getting a Bimac. to cool his tank I would use a sump with a fan over it, but I don't want an unsightly algae filled tank cluttering up my room, so heres my idea, what if I were to put somehting else in the sump, like some small saltwater fish. the octo wouldn't be able to get to them, and the sump would look nice and attractive. or maby the sump could double as a feeder shrimp tank

If you live in Texas, in summer you not only have to use a fan over the sump, but also crank the air conditioning way down and use your protein skimmer only at night. Make sure your family agrees to this, given energy costs today.
