Using a sump to filter your aquarium is the most effective way to employ high-performance filtration gear and increase the overall water volume of your aquarium but we realize this is not an option for everybody. Sumps can be bulky, expensive and will require a bit of experience with plumbing to set up properly.

That is precisely why hang-on style aquarium equipment can be a real lifesaver!

Especially for those of you building a tank on a budget or looking to move beyond your all-in-one nano but are not quite comfortable installing a sump system.

Today we'll take a closer look at all the cool hang-on equipment available for reef tanks. Save space in your tank and hang on a protein skimmer, media reactor, calcium reactor, or refugium!
