Thats what I was saying as well..do a DIY
on the sump and you will have $$ to get a real nice skimmer. Keep in mind if you buy a big enough tank, you can place the skimmer on the inside of the sump. Do a search on google or on the forum here for Sump pics or sump pics. There are some nice pics on www.wetwedmedia.com
as well. Once you see how easy a DIY
sump is, you will not regret you did this. I regret buying a wwt/dry for sure!! Spent $200 on a "tank" with bioballs for nothing really!! your choice though....just my opinion!
