Reef tank 12 years ago 462,133 views

http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/ In today's episode we are going to add a sump to our aquarium, upgrade skimmers and auto top off system. We will also change the way we run GFO and carbon. In the beginning of the video we discuss some of the different ways to plumb an aquarium as well as individual plumbing pieces like check valves, gate valves and bulkheads. In a future episode we add a DIY sump.

Hole size will depend entirely on what size plumbing you plan on running, and the bulkheads you choose.

You could always start the tank without a skimmer, and then eventually purchase one later on if need be. Happy Holidays to you as well!

If you get a slip bulkhead, you can glue a pipe right to the inside. If you get a threaded bulkhead, then you can use a threaded fitting (like a male pipe adapter, etc.) but all plumbing connections are on the inside. Threaded female if its a threaded bulkhead, a slip connection on a slip bulkhead - same as really any other plumbing fitting, an elbow, a union, a valve, etc
