If that makes sense to anyone but me . I may have thought of a use for the 40b I've got in storage right now , might have to think about this some more.

I follow your thinking. I think anyway. You're saying a "false wall" kind of like a double corner overflow setup ? Hmm..... (Taps finger on forehead) I've got 13 empty tanks in the garage. I'm sure I could use one of the 10's to mock something up. Single or twin sumps ?

I was talking about making your own aio but a sump would probably be better, a drain for each section and just a Y to split the returns that way you could get away with 1 sump for both tanks but they could still be completely seperate. Assuming the overflows are mantis proofed
