Weld-on 3 rocks! DIY sump project workin well *edit* w/pics

I picked up a used 20long acrylic from the lfs for $30.00, got a new hole drilled and precut partition pieces from a local plastics shop, plus 6oz weld on 3 and an applicator for 24$ total. Four hours of tweeking with it all and I have a sump+refugium. Tomorrow is the water test. I put the refugium in the middle, left plenty of room for a skimmer upgrade, and a return pump upgrade.

Here's pics!

This was really easy to make guys, I think I'm hooked on acrylic glue now though, next thing you know, I'm making all sorts of little breeder boxes and stuff around the house, including a bigger project of a snake tank. Heh. Silly DIY projects get addictive.
