But look at the cost of a wet/dry. Just getting the tank drilled with overflows installed is $100+ dollars. Then I would have to pay to get someone to plumb the thing b/c I'm not confident I could do it correctly. The internal overflows take up tank space too (although not a whole lot). I would still have to spend some more money to build the sump and wet/dry system, which I'm not very confident about doing myself at this point either. I could get 2, 350 gph
canisters for $230.00 and add the HOBs I already have and BOOM, I'm in business with no drilling or overflows or any of that stuff. The wet/dry is better, I think, but the canisters are easier up front, but probably more maintenance and money down the road. Who knows.
