    you don't have much room to work in your current sump do you?

    mine is a trigger sump, there is room to reach in and change the sock while everything is still running. have a look at some of their designs.

    I made a few more photos, the first one is a morning shot, I think it's pretty cute when they wake up all shy.

    No, you're right, particularly in the Mechanical Filtration area. This is the kind of thing I'm thinking of: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9-eVVZ1lxk But how to use the 10 micron socks from DudaDiesel? I'm thinking that video looks like it uses similar socks with a recess cut for them to fit into. I want to do a 2 step filtration in series, starting with 100 micron and then pouring into 10 micron. The 10 micron I want to change daily or every second day. They literally take 20 seconds to hose out, but at the moment they take about 10 mins to remove /install. The trigger sumps are doing the kind of thing I'm thinking, but their socks aren't in series.

    My sump came second hand with the tank, so it's always been a compromise. What originally came was in red and I added the blue. I wanted to get the wet /dry because I like the extra aeration without the noise of an air pump. And I wanted the filter sock, most people are trying to get away from them, but I like them.

    My Heckel has found a hidie lately in this log, I actually caught my large Brown copying him the other day too. He was there tonight so I ran for the camera and quickly snapped this one off before he came out because I was around.
