Thanks for the drain details! I never considered going that large through the GB. I use 3/4" (20mm?) pipe through a Uniseal into the GB, then the bottom has a 90 and dumps into 1-1/2" (40mm?) drains. Right now I have to use siphons because I don't have a sump, so I need the water to ...

... will add considerable flow restriction / back pressure. If you gravity overflow from the fish tanks through your filtration this is simpler, but then you probably need sump tanks that I do not see in the sketches.

... beds for bio-filter and I go by the 1:1 rule - 900 gallon tank = 900 gallons of growbeds. However, if you are using rafts or NFT without media then that doesn't work.

... my kH around 4-6. I have a few tanks that crash well below 6.0 when the KH is 0, and I raise the pH and KH by adding Potassium Bicarbonate. Then when they are both near the desired range I can just use a mesh bag with shell grit as needed to keep the pH from dropping too much. Right now ...

I don't have any temp control other then the timer being set to "random" which is roughly 20 minutes "on" and 45 minutes "off." since it is in-line and on the same timer as the pump, the heater only runs with active ...
