Sump for tank questions


Recommended Posts

  • Regular Member

Hi all,

 

I have a 40 gallon breeder with two small goldies.

I want to add a sump to the setup WITHOUT having to drill the main display.

 

Any ideas how to go about this?

Why not PVC pipes or hoses that you can use. Just like doing a canister filter..

I'm about to do the same in a new tank, and I found overflow boxes or "weirs". Half hangs inside the tank, straining and catching water, then it over flows behind the tank like a HOB filter, and then hoses come down as usual into the sump. Good luck!
