Tips on making a Homemade Sump??

Have a 29 Gal tank sitting idle, collecting dust. I want to convert a 75 gal to a sump filtered tank w/overflow box. Any tips on making one, or a good website to go for directions? Any help is appreciated!! TIA

i would go to reefcentral and do a search, there are a ton of threads available on creating overflow boxes for glass or acrylic

There are plenty of people on this site that have made one. I`m going to move this to a forum on DIY`s that will help better. Do a search on this site and you`ll find several post of people that have done the same thing.

The sticky at the top of the DIY forum covers what your looking for. In particular checkout the 40 gal sump project.

Also melevsreef.com has a TON of info on DIY sumps

If you haven't figured it out yet I like to BOLD links :P
