Any brands of sumps I should stay away from?
Thank you again
I prefer building my own and I've only.bought one in since I started. So I really cant comment on the brands. It's a lot cheaper to buy a tank go to home depot and have them cut plexi glass to size that you need. There are tons of how to or DIY on the web to build your own.
I've always been to scared to try drilling the tank. Buy I know its the way to go if you can do it.
If you by a sump get the biggest one you can fit in the cabinet, bigger is always better plus if it has a big enough open space you can add a fuge later down the road if you want. For the skimmer you'll need one rated for 300 gallons imo
or more if you can afford it.
For a pump you'll need one around 1000gph more or less and your overflow box or if you drill it will need to be able to handle 1000gph
