i extend great appologies that this thread was infact high Jacked. if you would like i can clean up the thread a little and attempt to get things back on topic as theis very rude and quite distracting to the topic at hand....

back to the sump issue... i am sorry you can not find one but the good news is that many containers can be modified to be used as a sump.. rubbermaid storage containers. even file bins have been used with great success... be creative
i can post some more links later tonight to others who have made sumps from all sorts of things

Thanks Bear, but dont worry about clearing the thread up, its not a prob :) .... anyways, if you could put some links that would be great.... i cant seem to find anything to fit my tank cabinet, i am really thinking about buying some custom cut glass and DIY it. it seems like the only option, ive been searching for hours for the last 4 days and have found nothing.
You mentioned a "rubbermaid storage container" and a "file bin" ..... What are these? I was thinking of using a bucket of some sort but my Protein Skimmer is too big.. Heres a Pic



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Yeah Its just over 50cm in hight and just over 10cm wide with a screw to tighten against a FLAT surface.... so the bucket is out the window.

I dont mind if the filter stays in the tank but i just want to get rid of that massive "I SAW!" of a protein skimmer lol

The diameter of my Cabinet is 38 Length x 35 Depth
Many Thanks guys
