Petco $1 per gallon sale couldn't have started at a better time for me. Picked up my 40 gallon breeder to make my sump.

Nope, its where my old 90 gallon was, maybe 10 feet across the family room. So it should be relatively easy. Im about 1/3 full with fresh ro di water now hoping to be at least over half by the end of the night

Going to paint the inside of the stand now. Going to look into getting some glass cut for the sump today. I've got 5 days to get the tank up and running.

Lowes did a great, and cheap, job when I needed the glass cut for my sump.

Were they able to polish the edge so you don't get cut reaching in to the sump?

It might be an option, that's what I don't remember. Less posts between cold medicine naps might be in order.
