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

great vid pal, thats really helpful.
The only thing im am worried about is that the cupboard under my tank is very small, its a Lido 120 cabinet and i dint know how i could set up a sump in such a small area..... is it possible?

Get a tank to fit the space... then work around that....

if I was to make a sump what's the most impotent part about it. as I don't have much space?

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