Hey guys. My family asked me if I could have one thing for Christmas what would it be? Figured this is my opportunity to build my sump!
I have a 20g long reef tank. Right now it only has an HOB
and hair algae is creeping in on me. Hence why I want to get a sump up and going to help make my system cleaner and utilize some benefits like the skimmer and refugium.
That being said, i want to DIY the actual sump box from a spare 10g I have. I'll just get some glass cut at Lowes to make the sections.
I need opinions and suggestions as my handyman ingenuity is not the greatest....
What silicone would you recommend for sealing the glass sections?
And recommended equipment for this size tank...
Overflow box- let me make this clear, I REALLY DO NOT want to drill my tank. I will settle for a hang on overflow and return.
I've been watching a lot of videos but I'm still quite new to the whole sump thing. I want to get it right the first time.
