4 Reviews


Versatile Trigger Systems Ruby 36 sumps are constructed with high quality crystal clear acrylic and are designed to be used as either a Berlin Sump, or Refugium.

The Ruby 36S Sump has a three chamber system for standard Berlin/Wet Dry use:

The first chamber has two built in 4 in. 100 micron filter socks to help remove fish waste and particulate matter, helping keep your water clean and crystal clear.

The second chamber is an open space that can be used to house additional filtration equipment, such as a Protein Skimmer or Media Reactor.

The third chamber is for a return pump.

The second chamber can also be retrofitted with a light source (sold separately) to act as a refugium. Refugiums are excellent at removing nutrients and dissolved organics that otherwise would help feed the growth of unwanted nuisance algae. For more information and other uses, read our article on Refugium Aquarium Filter Basics.

The baffle between the middle chamber and pump chamber has a two platform design, that includes a filter sponge to trap debris and remove bubbles, the second platform can be used to hold additional filter media.

The Trigger Systems Ruby Sumps also incorporate Ruby tinted acrylic to limit light penetration, and reduce unwanted algae growth, and a built in probe holder in the sump chamber.

Using on 90 gal drilled tank with a Mag drive 18. Very quiet with plenty of room for my Reef Octopus 180. Heavy duty construction with a clean look

Best quality in the industry!


This is hands down the best quality sump I've ever used. I have it installed on a 75 gallon tank running with Miracle mud in the refugium. I couldn't be happier with the decision to go with Trigger Systems! You will not be disappointed.

Best Sump Available


Love Trigger for their exceptional quality build and functionality. The 36s ruby has been a dream so far. Will definitely use them in the future

No comparison


Im not easily impressed,but let's just say the ruby 36s knocked my sock off.it is a solid looking and beautiful sump. Look no further this sump you've been waiting for.
