Gonna possibly have my buddy make me one. He's like creepy smart with fish and reptiles and plant species and builds enclosures for everything. If I can find a tank to fit under, he can make me a sump.

That's great, he can probably drill your tank for you as well. If he knows acrylic he will know how to drill it. Then building a overflow, or buying a pre made one will set you up with a far more dependable and flexible system.

You could possibly try to find a bookshelf tank to use for a sump

Home Depot or lowes can cut glass to custom sizes pretty cheap so you could look into a custom tank to fit the stand

Ok here's the deal.... Tell me if this sounds good or bad. Reef octopus bh1000 hob skimmer, eshoppes pf300 overflow box, 5 gal sump with filter sock, and an eheim 2000 return pump (or comparable) I'll add cheato and a light as well to refugium and live rock rubble. Should move about 300-350gph. That's my filtration. My friend is making the 5 gal sump for me. Since the tank isn't drilled I feel like this is my best option. Thoughts?

Sounds great except the 5g sump. Can a 10g fit? You always wanna go with the biggest tank that will fit under the display tank.

I was looking at the dimensions and I think a fluval spec v would fit but it also depends on how cheaply your friend will make the sump for you

A 10 gal won't fit. It's ridiculous how small the cabinet is. The acrylic cuts in to hold the door bracket and that cuts back on almost 3 inches. So I'll have to use the 5 gal.

I don't know if you was asked this or anything but is the back of the stand open?
