Wet/Dry Filtration

Great, I just wondered if that setup would work.  I haven't had a tank set up in probably 8-10 years and knew that wet/dry was the way to go with SW, thanks, really appreciate it. I just took about 100 lbs. of crushed coral from the tank, so now I've got to decide on the right gravel.  I already have a nice selection of rocks to add to the tank. I'll be asking for more assistance soon I'm sure.

I have done both with a 125 and a 210......

Love the sump much better then the multiple options.

Agree on 2 Emps not being enough for a tank that size. I used to have 3x-AC110's, 1x-Ehiem 2280 pro, and 1x-Ehiem 2217 Classic on it, it was crystal clear.

Sump is way, way better than HOB, especially on a tank that size. Two Emp 400s would be underfiltered IMO.

You can always dial back the return on a pump or set up a separate line (post-pump) to drain back into the sump.

I have a 135 gal tank that I was going to set up as saltwater and decided to go with A/C s instead. I have a 200 gal capacity wet/dry sump filter and an 1800 gph inline pump.  I was wondering if I should stay with this filter (and maybe go less gph on the pump) or sell this system and go with two Marineland 400 hang-on filters.  Any thoughts would be appreciated.  Thanks
