I just built a sump out of a 40 breeder. I made the panes of glass 12" tall. I believe my center fuge section is 13-14" long, then the drain/skimmer section on one end and return on the other. I just used 2 panes for bubble trap and seems to be working great. I know some people use 3 panes or even make 2 bubble traps. I have a build thread with some pics if you want to check it out. I will try to answer any questions you may have

I'm using the app and not sure how to do it. Just click on my name and it should get you there I think.
