Custom sump makers

I'm leaning toward just calling lifereef and getting a full setup from them.

Forgetting price, who are the absolute best custom sump makers in your opinion?

This would be for 500g build.

Have to say Iím really happy with my Bashsea smart series sump. Might be worth exploring ready made unless youíve got some grand plans of something more unique

Depending on your wants & needs Bashsea, Lifereef, Geo, Trigger etc.
They are after all just a box with additives.
Geo now has one with a filter roll too.

250 gallon mixed reef, 2 Reefbreeder's Photon V 2, RD 3 Speedy 80 Watt, DAS EX-3 Skimmer, MTC mini cal, 2-3/4" Sea Swirls, Aquacontroller & 6 Tunze pumps.

If price isn’t a concern look at royal exclusive dream boxes.

IMO, you can not go wrong dealing with Jeff at Lifereef. He will custom build you exactly what you want.
