Tank drilled for a sump?

What does the following mean?

I have a 55 gallon fish tank drilled on three sides for a sump. Also has an auto top off drilled hole as well.

There are holes drilled in the side glass so you can use pvc pipe to and from a container and pump under the tank.

The sump is that containerat the lowest part of the system under the tank.

I guess the auto top off hole is for a tube from an auto top off setup. Which pumps in water when the sump goes below a certain level. To keep the sump/aquarium filled.


my .02

maintain Fw and marine system with a strong emphasis on balanced, stabilized system that as much as possible are self substaning.

have maintained FW systems for up to 9 years with descendants from original fish and marine aquariums for up to 8 years.

With no water changes, untreated tap water, inexpensive lighting by first starting the tank with live plants (FW) or macro algae( marine)
