30 gallon sump

So I'm starting my second tank I have a 60 gallon and a 30 gallon I want to do a refugium with my 30 but don't have chambers in it to do so any ideas what I can do?

You can either use it as is or you can add the chambers. When I built my sump out of a 20, I measured out what I wanted and went to Lowes where they will cut glass for you. I assume that they would do the same for acrylic. Then it was as simple siliconing the pieces in place where you want them. I'm sure there are hundreds of videos of such on youtube to watch to help you through this process.

Agree with sniper, but I will say don't do acrylic, do glass. My local glass shop did 1/4" glass baffles for under $6 a piece.

Well, unless it's an acrylic sump.
