A Usual Sump Setup
Note: Any of these setups can use drilled tanks for overflows instead of the usual overflow boxes as well as using external pumps instead of submersable types.

Sump with a side refuge setup
This design is well suited for growing mangroves in the refuge to allow for overhead room as well as to provide for a low flow environment for more delicate creatures.

Above tank refuge
This design is meant to allow live food to enter the main tank without having to go through a pump's impellors

 

abovetankfuge

 

 

Above and to the side refuge
This design is well suited for growing mangroves in the refuge to allow for overhead room or for equipment that is too tall to fit under the main tank in the sump.
