I appreciate everyones input, but there's no way I'm drilling this glass, although i would love to and know it's the better route to go. I don't trust myself to do it, and there's no one around here where I live that does it. About the sump, I am going to buy, either the Aqueon ProFlex Model 2 or the Trigger Systems Crystal/Ruby Sump. I don't want to have to mess with the headache of building one. I'm also going with a HOB
overflow without a prefilter which can clog and lead to flooding. The setup on the Aqueon Sump can only be setup to run a Skimmer in the 2nd or 3rd chamber. Both have to pass through a sponge that rids the micro bubbles before being pumped back into the tank. I'm def going to overkill the filtration system so I can stock this tank without any worries.
