    If it is the one without the pump can't you plumb it externally? With a few hoses maybe you can fit it somewhere else in your cabinet?

    awww_fish_street_com_image_show_php_6c33c5e58f9d5bd98c027d62188e1822._.jpg Is it this one? Might help someone else come up with some ideas

    There might still be a way to hook up a hose to the inlet of the pump and plumb it back to the tank

    Like Sam said pictures might help

    Any chance you could show a picture of the rest of your sump?

    Was the reactor larger than the dimensions quoted on the fish street size or was it one of those cases (that I do all the time) where you take a look and go "yeah that'll fit!" :D

    IF you look at the picture of the 150, it has a red tube down the side, this is not counted in their measurements, they say 15cm bit add 5 more for the tube

    This is probably a stupid question, but if the reactor said 100 or in this case 150, is that the amount of ml's of pellets you ca put in it? IMG_2894.jpg

    Says on the webpage that the 150 will take up to 2.5 liters of media.

    What is in the chamber on the right of your sump that is in the dark?

    ok so from what I can see, that red pipe is just the outlet? Can you modify it to go over the bubble traps in your sump into the return pump chamber?
