my new stand, where can i get sump/refug?

Here are some pics of the stand that I got with my 100gl tank. i think it is a good design for a separate sump and refugium. My question is where can i look for tanks to use for the sump and refug? the sump will be the larger side and the refug will be the smaller side.

sump: 38(L)x21(H)x12(D)
refug: 18(L)x20(H)x19(D)

I would remove that piece of plywood that seperates the 2 sections and not worry about having to find something that fits in each side.
Walmart sells tanks pretty cheap.

Sounds like a 55g tank would fit nicely under there....

yea, but...

yea, a 48x12x20 would be great... but then i wont have room to take the skimmer cap out from underneath to clean it out. looks like i might need to go a little shorter to have enough room for that

What kind of skimmer? What is the height from the bottom of the stand to the underside of the tank?

I just measured my 55...it is just under 21" tall. I don't think that is going to work. You have to be able to service your sump and with it being that tall you wouldn't be able to do anything to it.

You may need to go with a 30 or a 40 long....I don't know the dimensions of either of those tanks but the 55 is probably too big...
