New tank

I just got a 135 gallon tank. I'm about to start making the stand for it. This is the first time I'll be making a sump and I'm not sure how to do the plumbing for it. I got a 30 gallon tank running right and that's what I'll be using for the sump. The skimmer for that would be too small so which one would u guy recommend? The 135 tank already has two over flow boxes and the holes r already drilled at the bottom. Any advice and recommendations will be helpful. Thanks! Click image for larger version

Go slow and easy! I remember building my sump and doing all the plumbing for my 40 breeder!!! Lots of work, lots of stress, but hang in there!

Yeah I could have done the same, but it would be hard to do that and attend college full time + work. A 40 breeder isn't so bad, and is quite manageable.
