Hello

I have a 65G corner drilled aquarium that was used for salt water with a 25G sump . I understand I don't need to use a skimmer any longer with FW.

I have dual socks, then a skimmer chamber, then a refugium chamber, then the return section

How would I convert this over if I removed all the live stock from the tank , sand , , Live Rock ?

It looks like the bulkheads in that sump have drilled holes from top to bottom so what I would do is use the skimmer section for K1 media. Put an airstone or two on the bottom and fill it with K1. You could then use the refugium section for chemical filtration if you want (carbon, purigen, etc) or you could put additional biomedia in that section (ceramic rings, matrix, etc).

Keep the inlet socks and pump section as is.
