I am looking at these diy sumps and they look like oversized canister filters

I used to use the Fluval canisters, but got tired of cleaning them all the time. I bought a 125G wet/dry off Ebay and converted it into a sump instead. I took Lando's advice and ordered 30lbs. of lr rubble to replace the bio balls with. Awesome idea. The sump will also give you room for equipment like heaters, pumps, etc. to hide. In addition, it will add to your water volume as a whole for your bio load. If you do the sump, you can lose the canister.

I'm use to fresh water so I'm didn't know of that place. If you do have any freshwater tanks i highly recomend Phoenix Tropical Fish

Thanks. I haven't done a freshwater tank since 1993. Once I started salt years ago, I never went back. You will most likely do the same. Spectacular hobby!

I never thought they would be able to tear me away from my plants and my catfish but I got a great deal on a 46 gal bowfront and a reef tank would look great in it.
