    75 gallon DIY Sump-Refug

    Hi Guys and Gals,
    I need some help here and hope someone can assist.

    I have a 75 gall DIY sump-refug that was made for me but the return section was made to big.
    I would like to move the glass baffles to make the refug section bigger and the return section a little smaller.

    Once you cut the baffles out of the glue and hopefully not cutting myself or breaking them and once you find the spot to where you want them moved to what do you use to hold them in place while reapplying the new glue?
    And how long does it need to be cured before putting water back in there?

    Any pictures that you have showing this will be greatly appreciated.

    Do you have any photos of your current setup?

    Most silicone-based glues cure in 24 hours. What type of light are you using on the refugium? It may be adding more heat than you need. A LED light may be more economical (and safer) than your current setup.
