10 gallon glass tank for filter

Hi all,

I have a 29 gallon tank that I am setting up. I would like to take a 10 gallon tank(will just fit in the stand) and set up a filter/sump.

I have seen a couple of designs using acrylic dividers that are held in with silicone. I have read on here that silicone will not hold acrylic to glass very well.

Here is a site that I found with a simple set up.

Is there a way to do this simpler. I will not use a skimmer that big either Some kind of filter medium would be needed too. I might have LR at some point but not sure when.

Any tips or links to write ups. More detailed the better. Something other than a 10 gallon tank would be ok too as long as it fit under the tank. The 10 gal tank has to be stood up to fit in the door.

using something like smaller buckets, bins, etc, inside the sump can serve the same purpose as a baffle, without needing to glue any walls or anything like that.

for a glass tank, using standard 1/8th glass from a glass store will work, and you can glue them in using plain silcone and have a good strong bond, the only critcal piece is having the glass cut to the right size so it's a tight fit.
