New sump bought off cl

So I got this acrylic sump custom made by the gentleman I bought it from ......it has a hold on the return side for a two inch pump but I want to plug it ....anyways here's a pic it's dirty I'm going to clean it up ....hold aprox 29 gal when running how he had it set up I'm going to say it holds probably 34 or so gallons by raising the level ....


I only paid 20 bucks!!!! Good deal ??

Also what would be a good way to plug the hole as I'm going to use a internal pump or should I just go external ??

That looks freakishly similar to a sump I had that was manufactured... hole and all. Is it acrylic? Black rough bottom? If it's acrylic, you'll need an acrylic piece to weld on to the inside over the hole. If it's glass, you'll need a glass piece to silicone over the hole.
