You guys impress me so much, I couldn't even begin to think about doing something that DIY. Looks great and probably cost alot less than my prebuilt sump did.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Chambers for skimmer and overflow, water goes through LR to be filtered, slow flow over chlurpa and mangroves, set a higher chamber to keep junk from getting pumped back into tank and last chamber has return pump.

Here are my pics for you.

My 15gal sump I made.


the box in the far right corner is where I put my filter sock that i filled with carbon. It is also the spot where the DT water flows into.

and the sump with skimmer, heater and return pump.


and the CPR Overflow box.....I freaking love this thing.
