View Full Version : Looking for a sump

04/14/2015, 10:50 AM
I'm looking to get a custom sump made, or pickup a used one in central Illinois. Does anybody know of anywhere that makes acrylic sumps? It's for a 180 gallon, so it needs to be somewhat large...50 or 60 gallons would be great!

If you don't find anything else, I have this one I just pulled.

I have a custom My Reef Creations PVC sump. It retails for about twice what the acrylic one does. The pvc is much stronger and keeps the light from the refugium from growing algae in other parts of the sump. It is also completely rimless so its really easy to work in it.

Mine measures 36"x18"x18" so it would be suitable for a system like you are describing. I don't have any pictures on hand but you can google it and see examples.

I'm still running it but will be selling in the next few weeks once my livestock is sold off.

I have a couple I just listed for sale...

One is setup for a wet/dry (has bioballs) or can be used as a regular sump depending on needs. It's built well, just dirty as I just shut it down. Asking $125.

The other is an eShopps RS-200. I actually used it on a 240 gallon tank for a while with an ASM G4+ skimmer and it worked fine. Comes with two filter socks and float valve drilled and mounted in the return section for top off. It does have a crack near the top in the return section that's been there since I moved a year ago when I bumped it into a wall. It hasn't gotten any worse and is above the water line. Asking $80 for it.

Call or Text me for pics if interested. 217-413-1477
