A 30 or 40 "breeder"style tank will make a great sump for that space. I would go with a 40 breeder actually.

Most chain stores. I know my pet supplies plus sells them relatively cheap. It's really fun to build a sump, I did it. I have a video in the YouTube link in my sig talking about it.

It shouldn't be that bad tbh. I haven't done it myself...yet. Of the top things I read about being the hardest to do, making a sump and pvc plumbing. I did pvc and it was simple. Just do your research and take your time.

Plumbing doesn't have to be hard. Use vinyl tubing and all the trouble goes away

I don't know about Canada, but I can find them pretty cheap down here. Do you have a large chain store up there?

I had build a sump from fiberglass box and acrylic baffles. It's disaster. But building is easy to do. So going glass now.

I have PetSmart here. I am about 30 mins from USA border . Petco is about hour away. I will call them and find out prices.
