    Mines set at about 2cm under the fibreglass line, then there’s the stone work on top.
    just keep filling it Johnathan it will find its own level

    All depends what your running in your setups lol.
    My water levels are lined up to draco drum waste tray to skimmer level.
    Also people have them lined up to filters so they dont over flow there filters

    It's funny though as I have just lowered my drum for starting trickle in and out. For water levels. I raise it in winter with less feeding.
    So don t run my trickle feed.
    You psychic AJ.
