It's a space saver. The pump is in the bottom. The reef octopus was to big to fit in the sump/ fuge one building

Just picked up the tank I'm turning into a sump. Standard 55 gallon was going to use a 40 long but petco didn't have any and they sold me a 55 for $40

Make sure when you build your sump you leave enough room to take the collection cup off the top of the skimmer... It looks like it may be a tight fit clearance wise with the height of that stand...
