u have a build in overflow, right?
so all u need is a return pump and some PVC pipes, I m putting my sump together right now, its really not that hard when u try. XD
I thought its hard at first, but now I got everything in my hand, it easy haha

does your 20gal sump tank has divider?
if not get some glass piece from Home depot or other local store, use silicone to make the divider.

It's a durso, which makes the overflow fill up to the mid-point of the elbow and quietly spill through the drain. There should be another on the other side unless that was used for a return line.

Number of threads you create doesn't matter. It actually helps this site as it shows up more often when people google the problems they have with their tank.
