Check out my gallery for my sump that is in my utility room I just did. I used a rubbermaid cattle trough 100 gal and have been very pleased.

You coul say I have a sump/fish room. What I did was put my 80 gal tank on the finished side of the basement and then there is a simple paneled wall between it and my fishroom. I cut some holes in the paneling and ran the plumbing thru the wall and I put my sump (30 gal tank) in my fishroom on the floor.

Its really not much different than having the sump under the tank. The only difference is there is a wall between the two at this point.

Here is my sump room. Sump is on the floor and the refugium is in the back. I have since put the 20 gal tank in a 32 gal rubbermaid container for overflow protection I also added another container for the top off that sits beside the sump.

This has been up for about 2 months and all is well. I wish it was a bit wider but it uses the space well. Hopfully moisture won't be a problem over the years.
