View Full Version : Need sump idea's

09/30/2017, 06:56 AM
I will be setting up a DB 80g rimless and need some ideas for a sump. The sump will hold a large filter sock, skimmer, return pump, ATO switch, and heaters. I will also have a UV sterilizer and maybe a GFO reactor hanging on the side.

I don't need or want a big sump. I'd like something 24-30" long and full width of the stand which is TBD. I have no problem building a sump out of a glass tank just have to find the right size tank.

Go 40b

I went custom on my DB 80. dimensions were 36x16x16. Go with the 40b if you can fit it in your stand. Otherwise, 20 long.

40b just seems bigger than I need. Is a trigger system ruby 30 worth it over a 40b?

Go 40b

Any good layouts for the 40B. I'm about 20hrs away from converting one to a sump for my new build, still can't decide on a layout. LOL

After some thought I will use a 40b. The far right 6" I'll partition off and make my ATO tank
