LoL I feel your pain. I busted my first two sumps. The first was an accident, the 2nd was intentional so that I could convice my wife I "had" to spend money on a 3rd.

If I hadnt allready bought the stuff to do my current set up I would have a custom sump/fuge built, which is what I wanted in the first place but since I allready had the current sump, I opted to go the cheaper route and now look at me, This is more expensive,LOL All I can do now is laugh about it and move on. I might see about having another piece of glass installed in the busted one for a spare.LOL
