Yeah I am thinking of Just making my own. I already decided on a 20 Gallon and I am going to design it a different way than everyone else has. But also thinking a 30 Gallon But just wondering if I go with a 30 gallon would I need a Stronger return pump or will a Mag 7 work just fine? Also I will be ditching the HOB and getting either the OCto Skimmer or an ASM skimmer In'Sump... Just have not decided yet. Still to early to determine that.

Size of the sump has nothing to do with which return pump you get.. It's all about matching your Overflow~!

I expect a complete thread documenting the build

EDIT - I have a Mag7 with this OVerflow:

yeah but that's probably a few years from now. Right now I am just concentrating on this build and my DIY 30 Gallon Sump/Fuge.
