System volume will be somewhere around 110 gallons after rock. Figured I'd start filling today since my RODI reservoir is only 30 gallons.

Nice job. I've done something similar. I use the 100 gal rubbermaid as my sump, the frag tank is a 10" x 36" x 72", with a 55 gal off to the side all plumbed together.

Nice setup! I was thinking of going with an actual frag tank, but then I decided I wanted to go with a more rudimentary approach to see how it will perform. I was on the fence on working out a 100g stock tank for the refugium area, but the size just didn't fit my idea. Definitely love your setup though!

I've used a bunch of these over the years at the LFS and as sumps and frag tanks at home. They are pretty much indestructible, but difficult to put in baffles as I have found few glues that will stick to it. Can't beat the price.

Does anyone have trouble with the drain leaking at the bottom? I want one but it will be in a room with laminate floors and they don't like leaks!!

Just set mine up and in the process of filling it, no leaks so far. I did drill it on the flat spot of the tank where rubbermaid designed for drains to be installed.

As long as you install the bulkhead properly, they seal up really well. Not much use as a display tank in the living room, but works for about everything else. Best thing to cure live rock in because they are so tough.

Mine came with a bulkhead preinstalled and it leaked. I was planning on changing it out to a PVC-80 bulkhead anyways so it didn't matter. Was a tough fit though due to the ledge inside. Also I got a 100 gal on eBay for $99 (shipped free) and it was delivered in less than 36 hours!
