A sump is a seperate tank/container that is used to store water/add more volume to your system but water is exchanged between it and the main tank via pump/air lift. They can also be used in a lot of different ways such as filters, holding tanks for injured fish, refugiums, etc.superwaterguy52;80617 said:Ok, I've heard alot about these things here and I know what they essentially are, but I still don't get it. Can someone explain it to me in specifics so I can understand?
So, if I have a 50 gallon tank, and a 30 gallon filter sump, is that the same thing as having an 80 gallon tank?marinebio_guy;80623 said:A sump is a seperate tank/container that is used to store water/add more volume to your system
