Yea thats what i was thinking originaly, but im not likely to find a good sized cheap aquarium. So i don't know. I like the idea of a sump because it probably filters a lot better than a canister and for sure better than a HOB. I might have to come back to this during the summer when i'm not in school. I might go with a canister that i can use on a 30 or 40 gal, for after i make the sump. I got a pretty good idea to use the Plastic drawers and divid them in half to make different medias. Leave the bottom shelf empty, and put the pump in there. The only problem is having a resivor for excess water when there is a power outage. I just need to figure out how much water will be put in before the siphon in the over flow breaks...I hope to do this in the summer. I am also hoping to convence my parents to keep my 55gal running after i leave for college, but thats another story.
