Adjustable Water Level

Water level in the sump is adjustable on the following RUBY sumps:

  • RUBY20C Cube from 7” to 9.5”
  • RUBY30E and RUBY36E Elite from 7” to 10”

This feature is to accommodate for the water height requirements for different protein skimmers. 

Dual Platforms

RUBY sumps come with dual platforms in the space before the return section. The top platform comes with a foam block filter and the bottom one is open to use for several different filtration methods (bag of carbon, bio balls, rubble rock, etc.).

Locking Filter Sock Holder

Filter socks snap and lock into the filter sock holders to secure the filter sock from falling out when it becomes clogged and needs to be cleaned or replaced. The 4” filter socks are 100 micron rating.

Probe Holder

All RUBY sumps come with a probe holder that can hold up to three probes. The holes are 0.63” in diameter.

Draw String Tabs

Tabs are located on the top support brace in front of the 1” bulkhead fittings (which are included). The purpose of these tabs is to provide a location for tying off 7” diameter filter socks that have draw strings.

  1. A nice sump/refugium BUT Review by carey
    Product Rating:

    Ok, I will start with the good. The sump is really pretty and clean looking and I love the second little rack so you can run carbon in a bag or other media. It has a pretty large refugium area as well and plenty of room in the return section so I can power my return pump as well as fit a mag3 for my biopellet reactor. BUT I have to say I am extremely disappointed in the size of the first chamber. Yes, I was absolutely aware of the dimensions BUT that is not taking into account the rim that goes around that section. I measured my skimmer, an ASM 3 and it should have had an inch at least on each side. But now, just went and did the install with all new plumbing on the 180g yesterday and could barely jam the skimmer in that section. No matter how it was placed there was zero room to get at the filter socks and the skimmer pump would have had to be off the bottom. The only solution was to forego the refugium and place it there. This totally defeated the purpose of me upgrading to this sump, I wanted the refugium badly. I also have to say that the edges of the sump are fired so there was some cracking in the seams, nothing to cause a flood but not as pretty as it should have been. I do not in any way blame aquacave for this, I have always had great luck ordering from here but the manufacturer should have more accurate measurements. On top of that, this sump went down $50 today which is just the capper to this mess. If I could I would have returned this and gone with the emerald sump which would have been overkill but would have done what I wanted it to. (Posted on 11/23/2015)

  2. Trigger System Ruby 36S, WOW Review by King,Fish
    Product Rating:

    I have had a 180"since 2008 which I broke down 2 years ago. I had a 36 Mega Flow model 4 that's fair. I decided if I'm going to set the rank back up its going to be nice and that starts with the sump.,matter much research it's clear that Trigges Systems has a great reputation so I decided to buy the Ruby 36S. I opened up the box and am impressed with the quality of the sump and can't wait to get it in place, plumbed and water flowing. I'll be setting up a Bean Animal overflow that will be quiet and the Ruby will be key in filtration. I hope to update after the system is in. First impression is wonderful and full of promise.

  3. Great sump! Great Service! Review by Algae318
    Product Rating:

    This sump is much more than I expected. Well built, great quality. Glad I chose this one and not the Eshopps. The slot from the return side to refugium chamber allows a nice calm water flow instead of being dumped over the top like a waterfall. this is a great feature if your growing macro algae, and keeping pods. And as usual, aquacave has great prices, and great customer service. received shipment on time the day I requested it to arrive. Started shopping with aquacave about 2 years ago, and will continue to do so. (Posted on 4/7/2015)
