I haven't been able to get a decent front picture because I have to get so far away to get the 8 feet in the picture. I'll try to shoot one tonight and post it in my tank build page.

And I thought I was the only one with a sump fetish.

I just recently finished this custom cabinet for my 110 gal tank. ATO stored in the left cabinet, food and chems in the right. The center is my 30 gal sump. It's somewhat unique in that it only has 2 sections. The first has the drains, SRO 2000 skimmer, pump for GFO reactor which is behind the sump, cheato and finally rock rubble which is right full to keep cheato pieces from getting away. Then the return section with an external pump.
Switches for skimmer, return, PHs and ATO. Tier for PHs and fuge lighting on back walls. Oh yeah, my bio pad for my QT filter is in there getting bacterialized (new word, I just invented it).

Just got mine finished. I had a premade 10g but upgraded when I was given a 55g tank. A sheet of plex and some silicone and now I have this monster.

90 Gallon Sump in the Making

Forgot to post this one. I'm building a Coral Farm and I'm building this sump for the system. I also have a 15 bay fish holding system that has a sump to but i still have to pick it up. I have it purchased but means of transporting a 7 foot tall 5 foot wide system is tricky. Anyhow, here is the future 90 gallon sump. I have (2) 4 ft tall reef octopus recirculating skimmers.

Hey dans180 I have the same skimmer and wanted to do 30 gal sump too. What are the dimensions of your compartments?
