Hey guys thanks for the info! Ive been talking to my dad about this and he thinks it would be an easy and fun peoject to make it ourselves...so, the plan is that over the break thats what we'll do! We can buy the skimmer first, make the compartment specifically for it, and then make the tank from acrylic or glass! It all sounds good so far!

No, I meant use the one in the back and run an additional smaller one in the sump.

Yeah that'd work, but the scrubber would be pretty small. Idk if you would want it. It would have to be cleaned a lot and might not do much because of the size of the aquarium.

I think it would be really tough to get a skimmer, and algae scrubber, and return pump into the area you described.

Hey fort did you see the picture that we drew up? We think it could work but we are young to have to buy the skimmer first and modify the tank to the size of the skimmer. This is just what we would like to do, we will figure out if it works once we construct the tank
