Correct, 20 Long, not 20 Liters. The reason I say 20L is because a 20H has a smaller foot print that would make it even more difficult to get equipment in. The smallest foot print I would want for the size of equipment you will need for your DT is a 20L.

ohhh lol am such a noob haha. You think I would be able to manage that from the side as they are side opening doors? Kind of confused with the twin stand pipes.. any of you guys got any good links to explain?

They separated or are the bulkheads right next to each other?

This is setup for a single drain and return.


I would suggest a durso stand pipe for the drain.

Do you have any plumbing or the bulkheads?

connections underneath
so to just jump in here with my own opinion from what I read on Hagen's site is correct these tanks aren't really meant to run with a sump, the standpipes are just meant to directly connect to the intake/output lines on a canister filter like the 305 for a cleaner look than with the lines hanging over the side, my only suggestion for a sump would be get the longest tank you could fit underneath like maybe a 33 gal long and have it set up with all the important stuff you need access to at either end and leave the bulk of the middle section open as a fuge that needs little to no maintenance as it would be so difficult to reach, also if you could give a measurement of the inside of the stand we could better help select a proper sized tank for the sump
