Anyone have a reputable company? I live in Missouri, but don't mind road tripping.

Yes they do.

I assue you have already asked, but ask a few fish stores. I am sure there are some local people that make some. There are some acrylic companies in St Louis. And there is a large company in MN.

Our local source is pretty pricey, so I'm shopping around;)

Figured that. I am suprised you did not already have one lined up.

Yeah, one company supplies all the Sant Louis LFS, no competition and his prices are pretty dang high. I don't mind driving to get custom sumps if the price is right.

You might want to contact John at Advance Arcylics. He does great work. They also offer PVC sumps which are pretty nice as well. He's on the west coast but he can ship without issue.

I would agree with Advanced Acrylics. Recently bought a large tank and Advanced was at the top of the list for an acrylic tank. I ended up going with glass so unfortunatley didn't work long with John. My few weeks of interactions with him were very professional and had quick responses to questions. I have personally seen 3-4 of his tanks and they are top notch. I can't imaging his sumps would disappoint.
