Alright! If I do this then I'll probably stick a little 2.5 tank in there as a fuge.

thanks it was the way i planned to lay out my sump/fuge to maximize the space. i'm building a new stand for my 26g bow front and its 24x 15 so i'm plannign one either a 20g or a 25g and wanted it mostly fuge with a skimmer and a filter sock on the return, so it was my way of removing the chambers and bubble plates to utilize the area for a DBS .

i'm thinkign a 25g might be a little tall as i will only have abotu 8 inches of clearance at the opening of the stand as it has a 2x4 skeleton holding it all together
