I've seen it before but can't really say I thought it was a good idea. It'll function however I think it looks crappy and takes away quite a bit of space from your DT

A lot of folks who don't drill their tanks section off the tank (from the back to front) to create a sump/refugium in their DT. It's essentially like a biocube etc. The depth of the back refugium is up to you.
