You could just search for a plastics manufacturer near you. There's got to be one somewhere around there.
As for the 3000+ gallons of return, if you have a sump to accommodate it it will work. How large is it? How about the return....can you even get 3000gph through it? What are those pipes....1"?

I think you overdid it on the pump, as I feel you will use about half it's potential.

Following along. I love the dimensions of this tank. I upgraded to a 36" 90 gal (36x24x24) and I already want a 36" cube. Nice tank!!

It's going to be very difficult lighting this with T5 lamps. You will either have to go 36" or 48"....
Personally, I have not seen better growth with T5 over any other lighting, besides power compact. It's all a matter of how much...how many lamps, and what brand they are...what type of reflectors...etc.

You are going to have to run the t5 lamps front to back, and use 36" fixtures, or retro kits.
To cover 41" though.....two 8 lamp fixtures? That's gonna be $350.00-$400.00 every 9 months in bulbs. I think you should build your own LED hood to cover this thing.
