55g sump build

Ok, so after getting very angry with my two canister filters, i decided to go with a wet/dry filter for my 150g. I remembered that i had this 55g that i was trying to sell, the center support was stupidly removed by the person who had this before me, so its not suited (in its current condtion) to be full of water. Im going to make a 4 chamber sump, having a refugium build in to house plants for now, and then hopefully one day for sw purposes. im going to fabricate some sort of a brace to support the center of the tank too, before you start worrying. This is going to be a slow build as i have very little time for anything anymore. I stuck a picture of the tank on here, as im sure you guys are interested in seeing a standard 55g tank with no center support. Im going to build everything, and ill update with pictures as i go.
