your bestbet is to grab an empty tank (rectangle 10 gallon or bigger) and make one.. visit the article section for ideas and i will post more about this later on...oh dont forget youtube and google are great resources also

the first was written by a member here the other two are a video that go into detail with a more hands on approach.. now the man inthe vid is making a 55 gallon version but you can adapt this method to any size tank

The best part is for hiding all the bits in the sump and adding more water volume.
