This is my 10g sump. I changed it up as I learned about. There is a lot of DIY stuff on the board as well as YouTube videos. I also made a PVC
overflow w/ skimmer suction. All of my learning was from YouTube. One thing to remember is depending on the overflow side depends on your pump size. EG, 1 inch overflow flows about 375 gph
, you need a pump that will double this because the height of your tank effects flow. Last pic shows the PVC
overflow in tank.
With rio+ 1700 pump and PVC
overflow, I'm in mine 90$.
