Buffy would running 2-10g tanks for a sump fit below your 75? I figured you can only fit a 20l width wise in the stand, maybe the 2x10g will fit one behind the other, therefore saving space

wow for some reason this thread is making me think how easy it would be to turn a 20 gallon with a stand into a really bada** DT with a 10 gallon sump and all the extra parts i have. all i would need is lights i think.

must stop thinking...

No, my stand has no place for a tank of any size, well .....may be like a 4"x4" lol

Stand has shelves. I liked the stand when I got it but I never heard of a sump when I bought it soooo, it's not made for sumps. I thought I had a pic of it somewhere in the thread. I'll go back and look, cause I've had to delete pics. If not there I will post one.
