I am currently working on a rough draft of a DIY project for a sump. I still need to take pics so it should be posted in the next 2 days.

Franklin could you give a little better idea of what you are looking for?

IE: Is this just a sump to add water volume? Do you want wet/dry? bubble traps? is a skimmer going in there, if so how big? Do you have a fuge or are you planning on the sump being part of it?

If it's just for adding a skimmer and some water volume a 20g tank works well with a few dividers siliconed in place.

Sounds like the ProClear 150 Pro I just spent nearly $300.00 on :(

The Oceanic 20 and 30g sumps are the absolute biggest rip offs I've ever seen. Personally I use this, http://triggersys.com/sumps.html The TSR36. Everything you could ever dream of packed into one nice display box. Also it's not to expensive. I paid about $350 for mine.
