Thanks, I had to change plans yesterday. I checked it out and realized that there was no way I was going to fit a 30g Tnak for planned Sump/fuge in the stand I was purchasing without putting it in at time of set up.
So, last night one 30g tank and 5 sheets of cut glass later I know have a sump that will be ready for this weekend. SO far about a $73 investment. Not bad compared to the $300+ prebuilt models I priced that do not include a fuge.
Here is the design I used off the DIY
Mine looks exact except 30 gal
and I still need to clean up the extra silicon. Very easy though.
I think I will use bio balls and a filter pad in the first chamber held in place with egg crate cage insteaqd of rubble.
I also plan to fasshion a lid using plexiglass over the fuge to install a light.
