I am looking to build a sump.
HFG when are you going? Someone has offered me a great deal on a sump if that works out I won't need it so I have to check and get back to you, but it would be a full sheet.
Sea Monkey thanks for the lead on scraps.
well lets hear about the sump......I am getting a new one on Mon or Tues from Li so it is up my alley right now. I am excited. i guess clownnut made it himself, it sure looks like he knew what he was doing. Here it is here. http://thereeftank.com/forums/showthread.php?t=75924
What are your plans for the sump? Are you gonna use any bio media or sponges or anything? I think I am gonna construct a tray system so i can more easily run carbon, maybe cap off the right 1/3 of the sump and drill in bulkheads for input and put a drain through tray system in. I also am gonna drill a hole for an external return and will probably do an external skimmer as well. Honestly the sump design is almost as fun as the tank design. Have fun!
I am going to look at it today and then I will know more if it will work or not. It will be going under a AGA 210g with the stand being about 40 inches high and 26 inches wide. So I have to see if it fits my layout as I don't know exact demensions. I just know it is acrylic and is in my price range. Being acrylic I figure it will be easier for me to mood to my liking if need be.
I may try the new URI T5s over the top and put some lower maintence SPS towars the top with the rest being SPS. I have a Majestic Angel that will be the Center Piece fish, but I am hoping he doesn't pick at any of the corals as he has never been in a reef tank before. Only in a fish only setup since I have had him.
